ATLANTA - Kendahl Adams was selected as one of 18 senior women's basketball All-Stars selected to participate in the inaugural Beyond Sports Women's Collegiate All-Star Game presented by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA).
The 18 all-stars were chosen by a committee of head women's basketball coaches of NCAA Division III programs, who are also members of the WBCA. All players were nominated by WBCA member coaches.
"We are so excited for Kendahl," said Westminster Head Coach James Arnold. "She has made a tremendous impact on our program and it's great to see her get a chance to show off her game to others. She is a really special person."
Adams was a force to be reckoned with this season for the Blue Jays, averaging 19.6 points per game to lead the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. She also led the league in assists with 3.8 per game along with grabbing 8.9 rebounds per game, good enough to earn her second-straight First Team All-Conference nod. She was named the SLIAC Player of the Week twice this season and surpassed the 1,000 point mark in a Blue Jay uniform this season, ending her two years at Westminster with 1,031 points in just 53 games.
Along with the 18 senior women's basketball players chosen, two more will join the teams based on a fan vote.
The inaugural Beyond Sports Women's Collegiate All-Star Game will be played at the Cregger Center on the campus of Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia, on March 16 immediately preceding the NCAA Division III women's basketball national championship game. Tipoff is set for 5 p.m. ET.
