Student-Athlete stars

The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference named its 2008 all conference teams in men’s and women’s basketball in Birmingham, Ala. Fort Valley State had a total of three athletes (two women, one male) to make the units.

Takesha Riggs and KaDeidra Freeland both earned kudos from the league for their play in women’s basketball during the regular season. Riggs, a sophomore from Homestead, Fla., lead the SIAC in scoring (19.3 ppg) and was ranked high in several other statistical categories. Freeland, a freshman from Riverdale, Ga., was selected as the league’s “Freshman of the Year.” Freeland averaged 8.2 points per game, pulled down a team high 6.1 rebounds per outing, and lead the Lady Wildcats in blocked shots with 12.

Martrez Scott was the lone FVSU representative on the 2008 All Conference team. Scott, who was named to the second unit, lead the Wildcats in scoring (14.3 ppg), assists (3.6 pg), and steals (3.2). Scott is a native of Eatonton, Ga.
