Sells Picks Up Preseason Honor
October 23, 2008
Hattiesburg, Miss. - LSUS senior Janai Sells was named to the 2008-09 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Preseason All-Conference Team, as announced today by the league's office.
Sells, a native of Beaumont, Texas, is a two-year starter for the Lady Pilots and is the team's leading returner in both scoring (9.3 PPG) and rebounding (5.8 RPG).
Sells will be heavily relied on this season, and is expected to be a difference maker for the Lady Pilots as they look to build on their school record 13-win season in 2007-08.
"Janai is very deserving of this honor because of all the hard work she has put in during her career here at LSUS," commented LSUS Head Coach Ronnie Howell. "She will be a major part of our success this year, and we are looking for her to have a great senior year."
The Lady Pilots open up the 2008-09 season with an exhibition contest versus UL-Lafayette on Nov. 4. The regular season will begin on Nov. 6 when they take on Paul Quinn in their home opener at The Dock.
* The team was selected by a vote of the league's coaches.
