Women’s Basketball Awards Presented Thursday

April 8, 2005

The Lady Tiger basketball team held its annual season awards presentation at a private dinner held Thursday evening. Junior center Reggie Maddox took home four awards in her first year with the program.

White received two awards for leading the team in the statistical categories of free throw shooting and rebounding. White then earned the Annie Tribble Leadership Award, named after the former women’s head coach who led Clemson to 200 wins in her 11 seasons at the helm. She was voted by her teammates before the season began as team captain. White also won the team’s Academic Achievement Award, thanks to a cumulative 3.93 grade point average. White also was the recipient of the Aim High Award, presented by the Clemson ROTC to the player who demonstrates strong leadership, high integrity, service to the community, and determination in all endeavors.

Maddox led the Clemson team in scoring, assists, minutes played, steals, and was second in rebounds and blocked shots. She was selected by the coaching staff as the team’s Most Valuable Player, Best Offensive Player, and Best Defensive Player. Maddox also was awarded for the best field goal percentage, based on six field goal attempts taken per game.

Freshman point guard Tasha Taylor received awards as the Top Playmaker and Most Improved. The Columbus, GA native had the best assist-to-turnover ratio on the team and finished second on the team with 83 assists. Taylor also started the last 13 games of the season at the point guard position for Clemson.

D’Lesha Lloyd received the High Potential Award, given to the underclassmen that demonstrates the most athletic potential for future success. Lloyd led the Lady Tigers in scoring during ACC competition and finished the season with an average of 8.6 points per game.

Red-shirt freshman Maxienne White earned the Gene Beard Hustle Award, due in large part to playing out of position and matching up defensively against bigger opponents. Freshman post player Moreemi Davis was the recipient of the Bill Nix Coaches Award, given to the player displaying constant work ethic on and off the court. Walk-on Laurel Goggans received the Spirit of the Tiger Award, given to someone who is an inspiration to the team and one who has made a commitment and concerted effort to contribute to the success of the program.

Senior Lacey Shafer was also honored at the dinner for four years of basketball at Clemson. She had a memorable 15-point performance versus a top 25 North Carolina team as a freshman. Shafer appeared in over 70 games as a Lady Tiger.
