Aggies Pick Up Post-Season Awards

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Texas A&M junior center Kelsey Bone was named the US Basketball Writers Association All-America Team along with a Third-Team selection from FullCourt.com. Freshman guard Courtney Walker was selected to the Freshman All-American Second-Team by FullCourt.com, while Seniors Adrienne Pratcher and Kristi Bellock were selected as Honorable Mention All-SEC from the Associated Press.

Bone's list of accolades continues to grow following her spectacular season in the maroon and white with the honors from the USBWA and FullCourt.com. Bone, the SEC Tournament MVP, scored the fourth most points in a single season in program history with 582, while ranking third in the SEC at 16.6 points per game. Additionally, the Houston native pulled down 326 rebounds to rank second in the A&M single season record books and place second in the SEC averaging 9.3 rebounds per contest. The Dulles high school product was the only representative from the SEC on the USBWA All-American team.

Walker quietly recorded an impressive first season in an A&M uniform leading the Aggies in minutes and starting every game this year. The Oklahoma native finished second on the team with 10.4 points per game, second in assists at 93 and third at 4.2 rebounds per game. Walker thrived on the mid-range game and recorded an impressive 45.2 field goal percentage from the guard position. Walker was one of three FullCourt.com Freshman All-American selections from the SEC.

Pratcher and Bellock waited for Head Coach Gary Blair to call their number and did not waste the opportunities presented to them in their final season at A&M, each recorded career highs in nearly every statistical category this season.

Pratcher, a native of Memphis, Tenn., led the NCAA in assist-to-turnover ratio at 2.76 and recorded a career high 12 assists against Old Dominion at the World Vision Classic in Las Vegas in December.

Bellock, from St. Rose, La., recorded all eight of her career double-double this year including 12 points and 12 rebounds against No. 9 Tennessee in the SEC Tournament semifinals to help the Aggies advance on to win the school's first-ever SEC team championship.

Pratcher and Bellock's inclusion as All-SEC Honorable Mention to go along with Kelsey Bone's First-Team All-SEC made Texas A&M the only school with three players receiving post-season honors from the AP.
