The Sun Belt conference announced their all-team selections for women’s basketball and Georgia Southern guard Angel McGowan was named to the Sun Belt All-Conference Second Team. McGowan is a junior from Greenville, S.C., and she is the first player in the history of Georgia Southern women’s basketball to be named as an All-Sun Belt selection.

McGowan had a terrific season; stamping her name in the record books here at GSU, McGowan was able to score her 1,000th point against UL Lafayette. She averaged a team high 14.7 points per game along with 4.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game. McGowan finished sixth in the Sun Belt conference with points per game and tied for second in the steals category in conference play.

She is a player that every coach has had to game plan against, because she could go for 20 points on any given night. She has dealt with numerous injuries and bumps in the road this season, but she did not let it stop her. She kept letting the game come to her and it payed off.

McGowan has already created a legacy and she still has one more season left to play with Eagles. She has a chance to repeat another performance like this and possibly be better next year.
