COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Air Force junior Dymond James has been named to the Mountain West 2011-12 Women's Basketball All-Conference team, announced Monday by the conference office. James, who was tabbed an honorable mention selection, earns the first all-conference accolades of her career.
Despite missing part of the season due to injury, James concluded the regular-season averaging a career-best 12.3 points and a team-leading 6.4 rebounds per contest, while also ranking among the league's leaders in free-throw percentage (.805).
James, who is the first Falcon to receive all-conference recognition since 2010, is just the ninth Air Force player to be named an All-Mountain West selection.
James and the rest of the Falcons will head to Las Vegas, Nev., this week, March 7-10 for the 2012 Conoco Mountain West Championship, being held at the Thomas & Mack Center. Air Force, seeded eighth in the tournament, will take on top-seed San Diego State in the first game of the week, slated for Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. (PT).
