Nova Southeastern University women’s basketball forward Jasmine Wilkins recently gained national recognition, as she was chosen by Women’s Division II Bulletin as a member of their All-American Third Team, placing her among the 15 best players this season in all of DII.

In her final season with the squad, Wilkins (R-Sr., Miami, Fla.) led the 27-6 Sharks in scoring and rebounding this season while finishing third in DII in field goal percentage. She also recently garnered Honorable Mention All-American status by Daktronics, Inc., with both national honors coming after she earned the double nod of Sunshine State Conference Player of the Year and SSC Defensive Player of the Year.

This is the third straight year WDIIB has rewarded an NSU women’s player, as Wilkins follows Taylor Buie (Jr., Puyallup, Wash.), honorable mention last year, and Meixandra Porter, selected to the third team after the 2012-13 season. Former Shark star Stephanie Sarosi was a two-time honoree by the publication, in 2007-08 (fourth team) and 2008-09 (third team).

In addition on Monday, March 30, head coach LeAnn Freeland was recognized by WDIIB as Coach of the Year from the SSC. This comes on the heels of earning that same award conference-wide as voted on by her fellow coaches.
