The awards continue to trickle in for SSC women’s basketball players, as Florida Southern’s Michaela Hawley, Nova Southeastern’s Danielle Robinson, and Florida Tech’s Briauna Hagins were recently recognized for their performance this season.
All three student-athletes appeared among the Women’s Division II Bulletin honorees. Hawley was a second-team All-American selection. Hagins was named honorable mention All-American. Robinson was a member of the All-Freshman Team.
Hawley was also named an honorable mention All-American by Daktronics.
The SSC Women's Player of the Year, Hawley led the Moccasins and the SSC in scoring with a 20.0 average. She led the team in rebounding (7.8), field goal percentage (57.6), free throw percentage (82.0) and blocked shots (56). She scored in double figures in every game, including nine double-doubles, and was the only Moccasin player to start every game.
Hagins averaged 10.7 points and an SSC-best 11.7 rebounds per game for the Panthers. She ranked second in the league with a .541 field goal percentage. She finished her four-year tenure as the program’s all-time leading rebounder, shattering FIT and Sunshine State Conference Hall of Famer Sonja Radenkovic’s previous record of 897 in January. She became the first Panther women’s basketball player to break the 1,000-rebound plateau, accumulating 1,079 rebounds in her career. Her 340 rebounds in the 2011-12 season tied former Panther Lisa Sims’ single-season record, set during the 1987-88 season.
Robinson, who was named SSC Freshman of the Year, started 26 games this season and made an immediate impact for the Sharks, averaging 13.2 points per game, sixth best in the SSC during the 2011-12 season. Her shooting range was showcased all year long as she became only the third player in program history to tally 60 made 3-pointers in a single season. Her 36.6 percent conversion rate from beyond the arc was the fourth-best single-season mark in NSU history.
