COLUMBIA, S.C. – University of South Carolina senior guard Brionna Dickerson was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District III First Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced today. She is the first Gamecock to earn the award since Nicki Bass was selected in the 1993-94 season. As a first-team selection, Dickerson is now eligible for Academic All-America honors.

Dickerson, an international business and marketing double major, is one of just two SEC players that earned a spot on her All-District team. Vanderbilt’s Christina Wirth was named to the District IV first team.

Dickerson has established herself as one of the premier scorers in the SEC this season, sitting in 10th place in the league at 13.4 points per game, highlighted by a career-high 31 points at Ole Miss on Jan. 22. She has reached double figures in all but four games this season and has scored 15 or more points 10 times, including all five SEC contests in which she has played. In SEC games, Dickerson ranks third in the league with 18.2 points per game and is the league’s most prolific 3-point shooter, scoring 3.2 triples per game, and is third in the league in accuracy from behind the arc, shooting at a 43.2 percent clip. Dickerson’s .402 field goal percentage in league play is seventh-best in the conference, and her 76.2 percent free throw accuracy is eighth-best.

To be eligible for the Academic All-District team, student-athletes must be a starter or important reserve, be of sophomore academic and athletic standing at their current institution and hold a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher.
