Little Named AMCC Player of the Year
03/02/2003

PITTSBURGH — Frostburg State placed three players on the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Women's Basketball All-Conference Team, led by Player of the Year Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany).

Little, a sophomore forward, earned the league's top honor after leading the AMCC in both scoring (16.9) and rebounding (10.0).

She posted an impressive 14 double-doubles, including 10 in her last 12 contests. She had eight 20-point games, pouring in a career-high 29 against Penn State Altoona February 19, and she closed out the year on a roll, averaging 18.5 points and 11.3 rebounds in her final 12 games.

Little, a three-time AMCC Player of the Week selection, led FSU with a 75.5 free-throw percentage and 29 blocks, and she tied for second on the team with 49 steals.

She is the third Bobcat to earn AMCC Player of the Year honors in the last four years.

Senior forward/center Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) was also named to the All-AMCC first team for the third straight year and joins former FSU standout Shannon Rexrode as the only Bobcats to accomplish that feat.

Faust averaged 16.8 points and 8.1 rebounds to rank second on the squad in both categories. She recorded five double-doubles and was a single rebound shy of eight more.

Faust, who scored 20 or more points 11 times, finishes her career ranked fourth on the FSU all-time scoring list with 1,624 points and fifth on the school's career rebounding chart with 888 caroms.

Senior Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) earned All-AMCC honorable mention honors for the second year in a row. She finished third on the team in scoring at 10.8 points per game, and she topped FSU with 56 made three-pointers and a 31.3 percentage from behind the arc.

Myers attempted a school-record 181 three-pointers this season, and her 56 makes were the second-highest single-season total in program history, behind the record 58 she hit in 2001-02.

She also finishes her career as FSU's career leader in three-pointers made (184) and three-pointers attempted (582).

Frostburg State finished 12-15 overall and 5-7 in the AMCC. The Bobcats advanced to the AMCC Tournament semifinals, where they fell to league runner-up Penn State Behrend, 72-58.

FSU will return nine of its 14 players next season.

Pitt-Bradford freshman Julia Augustus was named the AMCC Newcomer of the Year, while Penn State Behrend's Roz Fornari was voted the Coach of the Year after guiding the Lions to a share of the regular-season title and a runner-up finish in the AMCC Tournament.

No. 2 Pitt-Greensburg (22-6) captured the league tournament championship with a 65-51 overtime win over Penn State Behrend (15-12) on Saturday.
