Washington, D.C.  --  Senior Olivia McNally (Sherman, ME) was named to the 2013-14 Great South Athletic Conference All-Conference Team at the recently held GSAC winter sports banquet.

  • Ari DeJesus of Pine Manor
  • Alexis Lee of Pine Manor
  • Jasmine Shabazz of Salem

McNally was the Owls leading scorer, ranking #5 in the GSAC at 15.9ppg and also topped the conference in 3pt field goal% at 39.3%.  She was 3rd in the conference in foul shooting at 80.3%, 6th in assists (3.5apg), 8th in FG% (43.7%), 10th in steals (2.0 spg) and despite being only 5'4, McNally grabbed 4.9 rebounds per game, ranking her 18th in the GSAC.

In leading the most efficient offense in the league, McNally was also second in the conference in assist-to-turnover ratio with only her backcourt mate, Darby Toth bettering her.

The senior co-captain had perhaps her best game at St. Josephs of Vermont in typical stat-sheet stuffing form, with a career high 31 points, including 5 bombs from downtown, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals.

"Liv was our heart and soul, on a team filled with very committed young ladies," UMPI Head Doug Carter said. "She worked so hard making herself into an impact player at this level, I am so proud of her and blessed to have had such a special young lady help lead our team this year."
