February 28, 2013, Saskatoon, SK (ISN) – University of Saskatchewan Huskie women’s basketball post Dalyce Emmerson was honoured by the Canada West Wednesday by being named an all-star.
Emmerson, a second-year Prince Albert, Sask., native, was named a Canada West First Team All-Star. It is the second straight season that Emmerson was named a conference all-star. In 2011-12 season, she was named to the Canada West Second Team, as well as the conference’s rookie of the year.
Leading her team in scoring, Emmerson finished fourth in the conference averaging 17.7 points per game and third in conference rebounding averaging 9.2 per game. She also was fifth in the Canada West in field goal percentage at .539.
“Dalyce has had an incredible, consistent year for the Huskies,” said interim head coach Jill Humbert. “She has been among the top of multiple statistical categories in Canada West this year, including scoring, rebounding and blocked shots. What was most impactful however, was how much the opposition had to focus on her play in their game plan, something that is uncharacteristic of a second-year post. She is extremely talented at taking feedback and implementing it into a game situation and well deserving of this recognition.”
In 2012-13, the Huskies finished fourth in the Canada West Prairie Division with a 13-9 record. Saskatchewan’s season came to an end in a conference quarter-final loss to the Fraser Valley Cascades.
Emmerson is now eligible to be named a CIS All-Canadian at the CIS Championship hosted by the University of Regina Cougars in March.
