WASHINGTON - Junior shooting guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) and senior forward Tia Magee(Tulsa, Okla./Jenks) both earned All-BIG EAST honors the conference announced Thursday. Rodgers was a unanimous selection to the first team for the third-consecutive season and it is Magee's first-career honorable mention honor.
Rodgers is the only player in Georgetown history to earn First Team All-BIG EAST three times in her career. She was one of five juniors of the 11 first team selections. The guard was also one of four unanimous honorees.
Rodgers has led the Hoyas in points in 23 of 29 games so far this season with a high of 39 points in the win over Dartmouth University at the Blue Sky Classic. She is averaging 19.1 ppg to lead the BIG EAST, 5.3 rpg to rank third on the team and has a squad-high 65 steals. Rodgers also shoots a team-high 83.3 percent from the free throw line and ranks second in assists with 52.
Rodgers has earned three BIG EAST Player of the Week honors and had seven nods to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll. She is also on a number of watch lists for national awards including the Naismith Award, the Wooden Award and the WBCA's "Wade Watch" List.
Rodgers leads the league in scoring with 19.1 ppg, while also ranking fourth in free throw percentage (83.3 percent) and sixth in steals per game (2.3). She is second in the BIG EAST in threes per game with 2.6.
Earlier this season, Rodgers broke the record for career 3-pointers. She is also second on Georgetown's all-time scoring list. Additionally, Rodgers ranks among the program's best in points in a season, 3-pointers in a season, career three-point percentage, career assists, career and season free throw percentage, career rebounds, as well as career and season steals.
Magee, a co-captain along with Rodgers and senior Alexa Roche(Bellmore, N.Y./St. Michael's Academy), also earned postseason honors. She was named honorable mention in the conference after an outstanding campaign. Magee is Georgetown's second-leading scorer averaging 11.1 ppg. She ranks 18th in the conference in rebounding with a team-best 6.1 rpg as well as 15th in steals per game with 2.0 to her credit.
Magee hit her 1,000th-career point this year and joins Rodgers among the program's scoring leaders. She also ranks among the program's best in career treys, career free throw percentage, career rebounding, career blocks, career steals and games played.
This is the third year in a row that the Hoyas have had two players earn BIG EAST honors. The last player to receive honorable mention was Monica McNuttin 2011 and the last player to be named to the first team was Rebekkah Brunson in 2004.
Georgetown opens tournament play on Sunday at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn. The fourth-seeded Hoyas earned a double bye and will face No. 5 West Virginia, No. 12 Syracuse or No. 13 Providence. Tipoff is scheduled for noon.
