Fayetteville, Ark. –
The Southeastern Conference announced the 2002 All-SEC team this evening at the SEC Tournament Banquet and South Carolina’s Niece Curry and Megan Hosp were named first team, while seniors Cally Plummer and Berna Dwyer were named to the second team. This is the first All-SEC honor for Curry while it marks the third straight first team honor for Hosp.

Curry finished the SEC season ranked second in hitting with a .420 percentage. The Kalamazoo, Mich. native averaged 1.19 blocks per game including 10 block solos and 53 block assists. Hosp averaged 12.26 assists per game and is third on Carolina’s all-time assist leader list. The Pasadena, Calif. native is only the second setter in Carolina history to record four straight 1,000 kill seasons.
