Lee's German Racks Up Post-Season Awards

Wednesday, March 20, 2013
The honors just keep on coming for Lee junior guard Hollie German. Already named the CoSIDA NAIA Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the SSAC Player of the Year, WBCA NAIA All-American and to the National Championship All-Tournament team, the former Polk County all-stater was selected as a first-team member of The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) 2012-13 Division I Women’s Basketball All-America Teams on Wednesday. Players were picked by the NAIA-Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association All-America Committee.

German lead the Lady Flames to a school record 34 wins against just three defeats.
Lee claimed the SSAC regular season and tournament championships. The Lady Flames also became the first Lee squad to reach the final round of NAIA National Championship.

She was listed near the top in almost all NAIA offensive statistical categories and finished the season with a 19.5 scoring average. She made 101 three-point shots and converted 148 of 187 free throws attempted. Sophomore Janna Adams was named honorable mention and finished the year with a 14.9 per game average. Adams shot .485 percent from the field and made 86 of 102 free throws she attempted. She averaged 9.3 rebounds and recorded 16 double-doubles.

Tugce Canitez of Westmont (Calif.) was selected as the NAIA National Player of the Year and Kirsten Moore of Westmont tabbed as the Phyllis Holmes NAIA National Coach of the Year.
A key member of Westmont’s recent title run, Canitez is the first Warrior to earn the Player of the Year honor since the award was established in 1998. The senior forward from Izmir, Turkey, led the NAIA in defensive rebounds per game (9.2) and was second in points per game (21.6), total scoring (714) and total rebounds (414).

Moore received Coach of the Year honors after leading Westmont to its first-ever NAIA Division I Women’s Basketball National Championship with a 71-65 victory over Lee on Tuesday. In addition to the national title, Moore guided the Warriors to a 30-4 overall record and its second-straight Golden State Athletic Conference regular-season championship.
