ALL-NEC TEAMS

Somerset, N.J. (March 3, 2017) – Mount St. Mary's University senior guard Alexis Carter has been named to the All-Northeast Conference Second Team, junior center Caroline Hummell has earned All-NEC Third Team honors, and freshman guard Ashlee White has earned a spot on the NEC All-Rookie Team, as announced by the league office on Friday.

Carter has now earned All-NEC honors in each of her two seasons at the Mount following a selection to the Third Team last season. The Woodbridge, Va. native led the Mount with 11.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game in conference play this year. On the season, Carter ranked fifth in the league in three-point percentage (.365) and 10th in rebounding (6.8 rpg). The senior registered 13 double-figure scoring games, including six in the final nine contests. Carter also tallied three double-doubles on the year, closing out the regular season with eight for her career.

Hummell's breakout season has earned the junior her first All-NEC honor of her career. The Brights Grove, Ontario native currently leads the Mountaineers in scoring with 10.3 points per game to go along with 5.2 rebounds while shooting 41.0 percent (89-217) from the floor. Hummell ranks sixth in the NEC with a 79.0 percent mark from the free throw line, and also places among the top-20 in the conference in scoring, field goal percentage, blocked shots and offensive rebounds. Hummell tops the squad with 16 double-digit scoring performances on the year and is tied with Carter for the team-lead in double-doubles.

White's emergence as the starting point guard four games into conference play helped the Mountaineers turn their season around as they posted eight of their 12 wins with the rookie at the helm. White leads the squad in assists per game (1.8) and field goal percentage (.431) this season, and is averaging 9.9 points per game as part of the starting unit while registering seven double-digit scoring performances over the 14-game span.

Carter, Hummell, White and the fifth-seeded Mountaineers head to No. 4 seed Bryant for an NEC Quarterfinal matchup on Sunday, March 5 at 1 p.m. Live action will be streamed for free on NECFrontRow.com.
