Vannoy and Johnson Named Second Team All-NCAC

Feb.27 - CLEVELAND, Ohio - Senior Allison Vannoy and junior Erica Johnson were named Second-Team All-North Coast Athletic Conference, the NCAC announced Tuesday afternoon. 

Under first-year head coach Alex Dellas, the Terriers finished the season with an 11-15 overall record and a 7-9 mark in NCAC play.

After pacing the league, averaging first and second in minutes per game, Johnson (35.6) and Vannoy (33.8) earned their first All-NCAC honor of their respective careers.

Vannoy led the team and conference in assists per game (4.9) this season. In the game against Kenyon, she broke the career assists record, tallying her 398th assist. After adding two more in the NCAC Quarterfinal matchup against Wittenberg, she became the first Terrier in school history to post 400 career assists. 

Posting a career-best 127 assists throughout her senior season, Vannoy tallied at least eight assists, 10, times. Her top performance came in a win at Allegheny, when she posted 10 dimes, coming just three shy of the single-game Hiram record. 

Offensively, the senior guard led the team in multiple categories including points per game, averaging 11, total field goals (99), three-pointers (36) and assists. 

Throughout the season, Vannoy posted 17 double-digit scoring efforts, including 10 of her first 11 games to open the season. Her top game came in the Terriers' first victory over Dickinson when she dropped 24 points. 

One of the top defensive players in the NCAC, Johnson topped the conference leaderboard in steals per game (2.4) and total rebounds (270). One of just two players in the conference to average double-digit rebounds on the season, Johnson also lead the NCAC in offensive boards, pulling down 117. 

She finished the season with a team-best eight double-doubles, and tallied multiple NCAC Player of the Week honors. Her first POTW accolade came after Johnson had arguably the best scoring week of her career. She posted double-digit scoring efforts for the first two times in her three-year tenure in back-to-back victories over Allegheny and Wooster.

The second honor came after the junior guard helped the Terriers sweep the Gators and Fighting Scots in their second matchup of the season. Johnson shot .550 from the field while averaging a double-double. She posted 13 points per game, while adding 16 rebounds per night, as well as 4.5 steals. 

After collecting her second player of the week honor Johnson became the third player in the 2017-2018 season to earn multiple weekly awards, joining Kenyon's Paige Matijasich and DePauw's Sydney Kopp.
