WISE, Va. – Officials at the NAIA released its 2013 All-America teams recently and UVa-Wise senior forward Chelsea Cluesman was named to the honorable mention All-America team.
Cluesman finished her senior season averaging 17.2 points per game and 8.6 rebounds a contest. The 6’0’ Cluesman also recorded nine double-doubles while shooting 49.7 percent from the floor en route to her second consecutive first-team All Mid-South Conference award.
The Jonesville, Va. native’s senior season was highlighted by her eclipsing the 1,400 career point plateau and grabbing her 800th career rebound. Cluesman’s final tallies registered 1,410 points, 800 rebounds, and a career field goal percentage of 53 percent.
The 1,410 points rank Cluesman ninth all-time in scoring at UVa-Wise.
She finishes her Cavalier career a two-time NAIA Scholar Athlete, an honorable mention All-America selection, a two-time first-team All Mid-South Conference honoree, a three-time Mid-South Conference Player of the Week award winner, and a 2010 AAC All-Freshman team member.
Cluesman becomes the first UVa-Wise women’s basketball player to receive any type of NAIA All-America honor since Sarah Helton was a third-team selection in 2006.
Also a member of the women’s golf team at UVa-Wise, she is on pace to finish her degree and graduate from the College this May.
