Roberts Named To SLC All-Conference Second-Team
March 11, 2013
FRISCO, Texas - One year removed from being named the Southland Conference Freshman of the Year, Stephen F. Austin Ladyjack sophomore center Porsha Roberts was named to the All-Southland Conference Second Team on Monday, as well as the SLC All-Defensive Team.
Roberts, a native of Waco, Texas (La Vega HS), has started all 29 games this season and leads the SLC in total blocks (44) and blocks per game (1.6), third in field goal percentage (.570), fifth in rebounding (7.8 rpg) and seventh in scoring (14.7 ppg).
Roberts, who is already eighth all-time in SFA history with 103 blocks, is the first Ladyjack to be named to the newly created All-Defensive Team (five student-athletes). The sophomore already has nine double-doubles this season.
Roberts and the rest of the Ladyjacks (7th seed) will head to Katy, Texas on Wednesday to face the Central Arkansas Sugar Bears (6th seed) in the first round of the Southland Conference Tournament. Tipoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. from the Leonard E. Merrell Center. Should the Ladyjacks win on Wednesday they would then face No. 3 Lamar on Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
