The 2013-14 Daktronics-NAIA Division II Women's Basketball Scholar Athletes were released Monday, and two Wolverines were honored. Juniors Jalissa Williams and Besa Ziberi were named Scholar Athletes. To be named a Daktronics NAIA Scholar Athlete a student-athlete must be a junior or above in academic standing and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5.
Women's basketball player Jalissa Williams was rewarded for her great season by being named Honorable Mention All-Conference by the WHAC. The awards were released Wednesday afternoon. Williams, who was named WHAC Player of the Week for last week, led the Wolverines averaging 16.9 points per game and 10.8 rebounds per game. She also had 19 double-doubles this season. The junior from Dearborn Heights, MI, added some range to her repertoire, which allowed her to make outside shots or draw the defender outside to defend her, and then she could take them off the dribble. Either way, Williams was a force to be reckoned with this season.
Detroit, MI - In their final game of the season, senior Danielle Cowart opened the scoring with a lay-up, and the visiting Wolverines never looked back. Michigan-Dearborn (4-24, 3-19) took control from the start and defeated the Marygrove College Mustangs (2-27, 0-22) 83-66. Junior Jalissa Williams continued her amazing season scoring 27 points and grabbing 18 rebounds for her 19th double-double of the season. The Wolverines led by as many 14 points in the first half and took a 9 point lead into halftime.
