Fipps, Doherty honored by Big West

To no one’s surprise, UC Davis women’s basketball stars Sydnee Fipps and Alyson Doherty earned Big West Conference postseason all-league honors, according to a Monday announcement.

While the league’s coaches voted Cal State Northridge guard Ashlee Guay as their Player of the Year, Fipps was selected to the first team for the second straight season. Fipps, a junior, and Paige Mintun — chosen as a first-teamer in three consecutive years (2009-11) — are the only Aggies ever to be picked for multiple All-BWC first teams.

The conference’s third-leading scorer (17.8 points per game), Fipps finished fifth among Big West free-throwers (.816 percentage) and was 10th in field-goal percentage (.440). The Mariposa native scored 20 points or more in 15 games and reached double figures in all but three contests in 2013-14.

“Sydnee has been so consistent,” UCD coach Jennifer Gross said during a Monday pre-tournament conference call. “She draws single and double coverage. When she puts it on the floor, people flood to the paint. She’s tremendous in that she just finds a way to put the ball in the basket. She works hard to improve every day.”

Sophomore Doherty — an all-freshman team pick a year ago — moves up the ladder with this season’s second-team honor.

Doherty, a former standout at El Toro High, averaged 13.1 ppg, grabbed 6.3 rebounds a game and has reached double figures in each of her last seven games.

“Alyson has really stepped up in conference play,” Gross added. “She’s leading the Big West in field goal percentage (.557), which shows just how consistent she can be. The most exciting, though, is that she is just a sophomore and is just getting better every single day.”

Jason Flowers of regular-season champion Cal State Northridge won Big West Coach of the Year, Simon DeCoud of UC Riverside earned Freshman of the Year, Hawaii’s Ashleigh Karaitiana was Sixth Woman of the Year and Cal Poly’s Taryn Garza took the Best Hustle award.

Two Cal Poly players — Ariana Elegado and Molly Schlemer — joined Fipps on the first team, as did UC Irvine’s Camille Buckley, UCR’s Brittany Crain and Guay.

Second-teamers were the Hawaii duo of Shawna-Lei Kuehu and Kamilah Martin, Janae Sharpe (CSUN), Alex Thomas of Cal State Fullerton and Doherty.

There were no Aggies receiving honorable mention or all-freshman designations.

Notes: Honorable mention players are Jonae Ervin (Cal Poly); Chante Miles (Fullerton); Cinnamon Lister (Northridge); Ella Clark and Lauren Spargo (Long Beach State); Jennifer Tsurumoto (Irvine); and Nicole Nesbit and Melissa Zornig (UC Santa Barbara). … The Big West All-Freshman squad included Onome Jemerigbe (UCSB); DeCoud; Anna Kim and Raven Benton (Long Beach); and Samantha Logan (Fullerton).
