COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina sophomore guard Ieasia Walker is an honorable mention selection on the Associated Press’ All-SEC teams, the organization announced today. The AP names two five-member All-SEC teams along with the eight honorable mention selections. Walker was a second-team choice by the league’s coaches.

Overall this season, Walker leads the team with 12.4 points and 2.4 steals per game, which rank 13th and third, respectively, in the SEC. She netted double-figure points 22 times this season, during which the Gamecocks went 13-9, and has four 20-point games on her resume. Walker was the team’s high scorer a team-high 13 times this season and paced the squad in assists nine times. With 20 points and 11 rebounds at Ole Miss, she recorded the program’s first points-rebounds double-double by a guard since Kellindra Zachery turned in 28 points and 11 boards against North Carolina A&T on Nov. 17, 2006. Defensively, she swiped three or more steals 15 times this season, including 10 SEC games.

In SEC action, Walker ranked among the SEC’s top 10 in both points (13.3) and steals (2.8). She turned in double figures in 14 of 16 SEC games and was third on the team in rebounding and second in assists in league contests.

South Carolina opens play in the Postseason Women’s NIT on Wed., March 16, at 7 p.m. at Colonial Life Arena against Appalachian State.
