SALEM, Va. – Hanover women's basketball junior Alexis Nall (Mount Vernon, Ind.) was announced as a fourth team All-American by D3hoops.com Saturday, March 16.
Nall, who made history when she received first team all-region honors from D3hoops.com, becomes the first All-American in school history. The junior was one of five players from the Great Lakes region and the only member from the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference to receive national recognition for the 2018-19 season.
The 2018-19 HCAC Most Valuable Player, Nall averaged a career-best 18.4 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game. All three statistical marks led the team, just like her 59.1 percent field goal clip, which breaks her own school record previously set during the 2017-18 campaign. Her shooting percentage is also among the top 10 nationally in NCAA Division III.
Additional season statistics from Nall included shooting over 80 percent from the foul line and 45 percent from three-point range. The junior recorded 15 double-doubles this season, which ranks inside the top 25 in the country. Nall even had a game with 30 points and 20 rebounds this winter.
Her performance inside conference play included 19.5 points and 11.1 rebounds per outing, shooting over 60 percent from the floor. Nall's effort made her just the third player in school history to be tabbed HCAC MVP. She was also selected to the HCAC's all-tournament team after averaging a double-double, 18 points and 13 rebounds per game, as the Panthers advanced to the semifinal round.
Hanover concluded the 2018-19 season with a 19-8 overall record, including a 14-4 tally in HCAC play. Both marks set new program highs under head coach John Jones, who was in his fourth season at the helm of the Blue and Red. The Panthers were the HCAC Tournament's No. 3 seed, as the squad qualified for the postseason event for the third straight year, while also making the semifinal round for the second consecutive season.
