The women’s national basketball awards have been released by the NAIA and NCCAA for the 2018-2019 season. Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) forwards, Rachel Ray and Jenna Price were named national scholar-athletes for the NCCAA with their excellence in the classroom.

Lexi Rich was awarded three different awards for her dedication on and off the court over the Lady Lions 20+ win season. Not only was Rich named a national NCCAA scholar-athlete but NCCAA 3rd team All-American and NAIA Honorable Mention All-American .

Rich led the Sooner Athletic Conference in points per game with 19.65 and total points with 609 where she was first team all-conference. She also broke the single-season scoring record at SAGU where she broke Chelsea Jones record in the middle of February. In the SAC, she landed 1st in free throw percentage at 88%, 1st in 3-pointers made per game (3.58) and total made threes with 111.  Off the ball, she was fifth in assists with 3.58 per game and 19th in defensive rebounds per game with 3.81. She also had four of the top 10 scoring nights on the scoring; most points in a conference game with 39 points, 3rd with 33, 4th at 32, and 10th with 30.

Going into next season the Lady Lions graduate three forwards in Dy’Teesha Diggles, Mckenzie Martin , and Ray. SAGU will return their top four scorers in Rich (19.1), Price (11.8), Sydney Meador (11.7), and Kiara Glenn (9.9). These girls helped the Lady Lions finish 5th in the strong SAC and get their first 20 win season in over five years and look to do the same for the 2019-2020 season.
