MINNEAPOLIS – Guilford College junior Anais Weatherly earned Second Team All-South Region women's basketball honors from D3hoops.com Monday.
NCAA Division III sports information directors from Virginia through Texas submitted nominees and voted for the South Region teams. First- and second-team all-region honorees are eligible for D3hoops.com's annual All-America units, which will be announced later this week.
Weatherly, a 5-11 forward, started in all of the Quakers' 28 games en route to a First Team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) selection. The junior led Guilford in most statistical categories, including scoring (15.0 ppg.), rebounding (9.5 rpg.) and assists (2.4 apg.). She ranked eighth among ODAC scoring leaders and third in rebounding, which makes her one of four students in the top-10 of both categories. She also averaged a league-best 3.1 steals per contest, the 38th-highest average in NCAA Division III thru games of March 12. Weatherly led the league in offensive rebounds (3.4 rpg.) and her 45.0% field-goal percentage ranked seventh. She ranked among the ODAC's top-10 in 11 different statistical categories. Her 87 steals stand second in school history and her 266 rebounds are ninth. She enters her senior campaign with 975 points, 25 shy of becoming the 19th 1,000-point scorer in school history.
Weatherly completed the season with 12 double-doubles, which includes a season-high 24-point, 15-rebound performance against Emory & Henry College February 17. She was a two-time ODAC Player of the Week and earned All-ODAC Tournament honors. Weatherly averaged 13.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.9 steals and 0.6 blocks in Guilford's eight games versus NCAA Tournament and regionally ranked teams.
Coach Stephanie Flamini's Quakers posted a 22-6 overall record and reached the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. Guilford has eight 20-win seasons, four in the last five years. The year's club made the school's fourth ODAC finals trip and third NCAA berth in five seasons. With no seniors on this year's roster, Flamini could return all 14 letter winners in 2016-17.
