Prange & Cummings Earn All-Conference Honors

March 1, 2018

RICHMOND, Va. - George Washington women's basketball senior Kelli Prange has been named the Atlantic 10 Sixth Woman of the Year while teammate Brianna Cummings earned spots on the All-Conference Third Team and All-Defensive Team, the league office announced on Thursday.

Both Prange and Cummings are enjoying the finest individual seasons of their respective careers as GW heads into Friday's quarterfinal matchup with George Mason at 2:00 p.m. at the Richmond Coliseum.

Prange is the fifth player in program history to win the Sixth Woman of the Year Award, and the sixth time overall a Colonial has earned the major end-of-season award.

The senior forward from Damascus, Maryland, missed seven games with a concussion with the team going 3-4 in her absence. She has come off bench in 15 games since her return with GW boasting a 10-5 record.

In the 15 games since her return she is averaging 11.2 points and 5.6 rebounds, including a single-game career-high 36 points against Rhode Island on Jan. 24. For the season, her averages of 12.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 44 percent shooting are all single-season career high marks. She recently became the 34th player in program history to total 1,000 career points.

Cummings earns the first postseason honors of her career with her dual selection to the All-Conference Third Team and All-Defensive Team. The Lawrenceville, Georgia, native is also enjoying the finest season of her career and enters Friday's game averaging career-best marks in scoring (14.2 ppg), rebounding (5.6), field-goal percentage (.437) and steals (2.0). She has five 20-point scoring games to her credit this season and has been the Colonials' top scorer 18 times. In the regular-season finale against Richmond, she joined Prange in the 1,000-point club.



On the defensive side of the ball, Cummings is routinely tasked with guarding the opponents’ best scorer. She has responded with 58 steals (2.0/game), including 12 games with three swipes or more. Her defensive efforts have helped lead the way to GW's impressive number of 12 games holding an opponent under 50 points (11-1 record) and 14 games holding the opposition to under 40 percent shooting from the field (12-2 record).
