WASHINGTON - Senior shooting guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) was one of 12 players to earn Region 1 All-Region honors from the Women's Basketball Coaches Association on Tuesday. The award also moves Rodgers on as a WBCA All-American nominee as the organization will select the 10-member All-American team from the 52 All-Region candidates.
The senior is the most decorated player in Georgetown women's basketball history with unprecedented accomplishments. Rodgers is a three-time Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American, a four-time First Team All-BIG EAST honoree and considered to be one of the best players in the nation four the past four years.
Rodgers was 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.
She is the all-time leading scorer with 2,518 points to her credit, making her the first women's player to surpass the 2,000-point mark as well as the first player in Georgetown history to go over 2,500 points, and the career leader in 3-pointers (346) and also holds the single-season record for points (711).
Despite her scoring prowess, she is not one dimensional holding the all-time steals record (326) as well as ranking 21st in blocks (43) and eighth in rebounds (674).
This past season, she led the Hoyas averaging 22.9 ppg as well as pulling down 6.9 rpg. Rodgers also tallied a team-best 105 steals and 127 assists as well as hitting 89 3-pointers. These totals made Georgetown's season points leader, beating her own record of 653 which she scored in 2010-11. Rodgers ranks second in season 3-pointers sitting in the top four spots, and second in season steals.
In the conference, Rodgers led the league in scoring for the entire season and also led the BIG EAST in steals per game with 3.5 to her credit going into the BIG EAST Tournament. She ranked second in 3-pointers, eighth in assists, ninth in rebounds and first in minutes played with 37.5 on average.
At the tournament, she set the championship record for points in a game in her final contest in a Georgetown uniform scoring a career-best 42 points in a loss to Villanova in the second round.
In the nation, the shooting guard was in the top ten in both scoring and steals.
She was a stalwart for the Blue & Gray appearing in 130 games with 129 starts including 104 consecutively.
The Hoyas finished the season with a mark of 15-16 on the year in Head Coach Keith Brown's first season at the helm. The squad had success defeating the University of Delaware early in the season and advancing to the semifinals of the Preseason WNIT, but was devastated by injuries.
The team will lose three seniors, including Rodgers, but returns eight players and is bringing in a talented freshman class of six.
