Sophomore Jay-Ann Bravo-Harriott has been named to the 2015-16 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-Distric 5 Team.

Bravo-Harriott becomes the fifth player in school history to earn this prestigious honor and first since Kelly Walker during the 2003-04 campaign.



To be nominated, the student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for her career. District 5 includes all schools within the states of Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

The 5-foot-10-inch guard scored in double figures in nine of the final 12 games, averaging 13.8 points and a team-high 1.6 steals (8-4 record, Jan. 30-March 9). Bravo-Harriott shot a stellar 44.9 percent (57 of 127) from the floor during this stretch, including 42.3 percent (22 of 52) from three-point land, and 75.0 percent (30 of 40) from the charity stripe in 32.2 minutes. 

Overall this season, the 2015-16 honorable mention All-Mid-American Conference honoree averaged 11.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists and a team-high 1.3 steals in 30.9 minutes.

One of two Rockets to start all 30 games, she currently ranks 14th in the MAC in helpers and assist/turnover ratio (1.0, 92-93), 15th in three-point field-goal percentage (.341, 46 of 135) and 22nd in scoring. 

The London, England, native also scored in double figures on 18 occasions in 2015-16, the second-highest total on the team, including a season-high 24 points vs. Western Michigan Jan. 9. 

In MAC contests, Bravo-Harriott tallied 12.1 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, 3.1 assists per game, and a squad-best 1.3 steals per game in 31.6 minutes per game.
