Sugar Rodgers

March 7, 2013

WASHINGTON - Senior shooting guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) was one of 12 players to earn First Team All-BIG EAST honors the conference announced Thursday. Rodgers was selected to the first team for the fourth-consecutive season making history in the process.

Rodgers is the only player in Georgetown history to earn First Team All-BIG EAST four times in her career and one of just two to be named All-BIG EAST all four years. Rebekkah Brunson was a two-time honorable mention honoree as a freshman and sophomore before being named to the first team as a junior and senior.

The senior is the most decorated player in Georgetown women's basketball history with unprecedented accomplishments. Rodgers is a three-time All-American, a four-time First Team All-BIG EAST honoree and considered to be one of the best players in the nation.

Rodgers is the all-time leading scorer with 2450 points to her credit, making her the first women's player to surpass the 2,000-point mark, and the career leader in 3-pointers (337) and also holds the single-season record for points (653).

Despite her scoring prowess, she is not one dimensional holding the all-time steals record (322) as well as ranking 21st in blocks (43) and ninth in rebounds (659).

This season, she is leading the Hoyas averaging 22.2 ppg as well as pulling down 6.9 rpg. Rodgers has also tallied a team-best 101 steals and 120 assists as well as hitting 80 3-pointers. These totals rank her second on Georgetown's season points listing where she already holds the record of 653 scored in 2010-11. Rodgers ranks third in season 3-pointers sitting in the top four spots, and third in season steals.

In the conference, Rodgers has led the league in scoring for the entire season and also leads the BIG EAST in steals per game with 3.5 to her credit. She ranks second in 3-pointers, eighth in assists, ninth in rebounds and first in minutes played with 37.5 on average.

 

 

In the nation, the shooting guard is sixth in scoring and seventh in steals.

She has been a stalwart for the Blue & Gray appearing in 128 games with 127 starts including 102 consecutively.

Georgetown opens tournament play on Friday at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn. The 11th-seeded Hoyas will face No. 14 Providence. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.

The game can be seen live online at BIGEAST.tv. Live stats will also be available through the conference's Championship Central. A link is available in the women's basketball schedule at www.GUHoyas.com.
