BURLINGTON, Ont. (February 27, 2018) - Nicole Morrison, a fifth year guard with the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks women’s basketball team, was named an OUA Second Team All-Star on Tuesday morning as the conference announced its all-stars and major award recipients.
For Morrison, a native of Hamilton, the all-star nod is the third of her career after being named a first team all-star in 2015-16 and a second team all-star last season.
The 5-5 point guard had a record-breaking season for the purple and gold in the final year of her illustrious career. Morrison, a communications studies major, set four team records over the course of the regular season including most assists in a season (105), most points in a season (462), most assists in a career (317) and most points in a career (1394).
Over the team’s 24 games this year, Morrison averaged 19.3 points per game, good for fourth-best in the country, and 4.4 assists per game, the sixth-best mark in all of U SPORTS. She also added 4.4 rebounds per contest and 2.0 steals per game.
As a result of her scoring efforts this year, she finishes her career ranked tenth all-time in OUA scoring.
The all-star nomination means Morrison finishes her time with the Golden Hawks as one of only four players in team history to be named an all-star on three separate occasions, joining Sarah Zagorski, Meaghan McGrath and Renata Adamczyk.
