Sugar Rodgers

Jan. 22, 2013

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University women's basketball senior shooting guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 20 on Tuesday for the third time in four years. The shooting guard was on the preseason watch list for the top individual honor in college basketball.

Rodgers currently leads the country in scoring with 24.6ppg. She adds 7.7 rpg as well as posting 64 steals and 64 assists this season. In her last outing, Rodgers led the way with 24 points and 10 boards in a 70-50 win over Seton Hall at McDonough Arena. It marked Rodgers' ninth-career double-double and the third of the season.

The shooting guard has twice earned BIG EAST Player of the Week accolades during her senior campaign. The 2012-13 season has seen Rodgers become Georgetown's all-time leading scorer in women's basketball and she posted the first triple-double in program history in a win at Providence with 33 points, 12 boards and 12 assists as well as six steals. The senior has scored 30 points or more on five different occasions including 35 in a 62-56 win at then-No. 11/10 Delaware.

Rodgers was one of 10 seniors to earn a spot on the prestigious list as well as only one of six players from the BIG EAST Conference. Six nods mark the most of any conference followed by the Atlantic Coast Conference with four.

The Wooden Award is the most prestigious individual honor in college basketball. It is given to one male and one female every year. It is awarded by The Los Angeles Athletic Club.

Georgetown will be back in action on Saturday, January 26 hosting Pittsburgh at McDonough Arena with tipoff scheduled for 4 p.m. Live stats will also be available. Tickets are available at the Georgetown University Athletic Ticket Office.
