CLEVELAND — Bowling Green State University’s Alexis Rogers and Chrissy Steffen have earned second-team All-Mid-American Conference honors for women’s basketball.
The 2012-13 season marks the first time BGSU has not had a first-team All-MAC selection since 2004-05. That 2004-05 campaign, like this year, saw the Falcons have two all-league second-team selections. That team went on to win the first of three consecutive MAC tournament titles.
Steffen is a senior and Rogers is a redshirt junior. Last year, Rogers was selected to the All-MAC first-team. Steffen earned all-conference second-team honors for the second-straight season.
Steffen leads the Falcons in scoring, averaging 11.7 points per game. She also averages 4.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.4 steals per contest. Steffen is tied for 10th in the league in scoring, and she leads the MAC in free-throw percentage, having gone 62-of-73 (.849).
Steffen paces the Falcons with 50 three-pointers made, and is ranked seventh in the MAC in 3-pointers per game (1.7) and 10th in 3-point percentage (.345).
In MAC games, Steffen led the Falcons with 11.0 points per contest, and she shot a MAC-best 90.2 percent (37-of-41) from the foul line.
Steffen has scored 1,193 points as a Falcon, and ranks 19th on the BGSU career scoring list. She is fourth in school history in 3-point field goals made, with 176.
Rogers is second on the Falcons in scoring, with 10.5 points per game, and leads BG in rebounding, with 6.0 rebounds per game. She ranks among the league’s top-20 players in both categories.
Rogers also tops the Falcons in steals, ranking 10th in the MAC with 1.9 per game. She has hit double figures in scoring 14 times this season to date, and has posted three double-doubles. Rogers has hit nearly 74 percent of her free-throw attempts, and ranks 11th in the conference in free-throw percentage.
In MAC games only, Rogers averaged an even 10.0 ppg, and led the Falcons with 5.4 rpg. She shot 52.3 percent from the field in conference games, ranking sixth in the league.
Rogers has totals of 675 points and 436 rebounds in two years as Falcon, averaging 11.4 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.
The All-MAC first-team consisted of Akron’s Rachel Tecca, Central Michigan’s Crystal Bradford, Miami’s Courtney Osborn and the Toledo duo of Andola Dortch and Naama Shafir.
Rogers and Steffen were joined on the second -team by Nathalie Fontaine of Ball State, Miami’s Kirsten Olowinski and UT’s Yolanda Richardson.
The third team was comprised of UA’s Sina King and Hanna Luburgh, BSU’s Brandy Woody, CMU’s Jessica Green and UT’s Inma Zanoguera.
Buffalo’s Christa Baccas and Mackenzie Loesing, CMU’s Brandie Baker and Jessica Schroll and Western Michigan’s Marquisha Harris all earned All-MAC honorable mention.
The MAC’s All-Freshman team consisted of Fontaine, Loesing, Eastern Michigan’s Bianca Cage, Ohio’s Kiyanna Black and WMU’s Miracle Woods.
