Two members from the Army West Point women's basketball team earned yearly Patriot League honors, the league office announced in a release Friday afternoon. Alisa Fallon was named an all-conference third team performer, while Hope Brown was tabbed to the all-rookie team.
Army's leading scorer with an average of 12.0 points per game, Fallon reached double-digit scoring in 19 contests this season. The Des Plaines, Ill., native was joined by Jade Edwards from American and Boston U.'s Maggie Pina as the only three underclassmen to make one of the three all-league teams. Four different times this season Fallon reached or eclipsed the 20-point barrier. Her top performance of the season came against Colgate when she poured in a career-high 26 points and was 6-of-10 from 3-point range. On the season, she shot 44.4 percent from the field.
Brown emerged as one of the Black Knights' bright stars early in the month of December. She posted her first career 20-point game against LIU on Dec. 4 on 5-of-10 shooting from the floor. On the season, Brown reached double-figures in scoring on nine separate occasions and reached the 20-point mark twice. She shot 39.3 percent from the field on the season. In conference play, she was the Cadets' third leading scorer with an average of 9.9 points per game.
