Marshall sophomore guard Shayna Gore and freshman Ashley Saintigene were honored Sunday by the Conference USA women’s basketball coaches and media in the league’s postseason awards.
Gore was named second-team all-conference, while Saintigene was named to the conference’s all-freshman team.
Gore, a Logan, W.Va. native, finished the regular season tied for fifth in the league in 3-pointers per game (2.3), seventh in 3-point percentage (37.2), eighth in scoring (17.2), ninth in steals (1.8) and 13th in free throw percentage (76.4).
Her 67 3-pointers currently stand as the fourth-highest single-season total in program history and her 118 career long-range shots rank sixth all-time. Her 499 points in 2016-17 are currently the ninth-highest single-season total.
Gore is Marshall’s sixth second-team All-C-USA selection, following second-team picks Sikeetha Shepard-Hall (2006), Modupe Ishola (2007), Tynikki Crook (2011), Chukwuka Ezeigbo and Leah Scott (2015).
Saintigene, a Lauderdale Lakes, Fla. native, is Marshall’s third C-USA all-freshman selection, following Alyssa Hammond (2007) and Shay Weaver (2012). She finished the regular season fifth in the league in blocked shots (1.5), sixth in offensive rebounds (3.0) and 16th in rebounding (6.1).
