4/10/2012 (ALBANY) - Darton College basketball star Michelle Mitchell is an All American, Honorable Mention, the NJCAA announced today.
The 5’9” freshman guard from Eastman was recognizable force on both ends of the court, and with tremendous speed she led her Lady Cavaliers in points, field goals, rebounds and steals.
“Michelle proved game in and game out that she was one of the top junior college players in the country,” Darton basketball head coach Lea Henry said. “It’s well deserved; Michelle had a phenomenal freshman season and she was so very consistent.”
Mitchell led the GCAA conference in 2-point field goals – shooting 49 percent to sink a whopping 193 2-pointers during the 2011-2012 season.
She finished with 448 total points and averaged 17.2 points per game. She also snagged 252 rebounds, averaging 9.7 per game, and was a two-time GCAA “Player Of The Week” selection.
