The hardware keeps on coming for the Longwood women’s basketball team. Daeisha Brown was named the State Rookie of the Year and Chelsea Coward was chosen to be on 2nd Team All-State.
Brown, who was also named to the Big South’s all-Freshman team, lead the conference in scoring for freshman with 12 points per game. Her 390 points this year was a new school record for a freshman at Longwood.
Coward ended the year averaging nearly 15 points per game and 8 rebounds. She was the first Lancer to reach the 1,000 point mark in the Division I era and was instrumental in Longwood’s run to the Big South championship game, as she was named to the all-tournament team in March.
