DAHLONEGA, GA -- Lincoln Memorial University senior guard Dayshalee Salaman capped her historic career by being named to the 2011-12 DAKTRONICS All-Southeast Region First Team, the region office announced this afternoon. The team is selected by the sports information directors throughout the NCAA Division II Southeast Region.
Dayshalee Salaman led the Lady Railsplitters to a 14-13 mark this season, which completed the first winning season for LMU women's basketball since the 2004-2005 campaign.
Salaman, a First Team All-South Atlantic Conference selection, led the SAC in scoring at 20.6 per contest and assists with 4.48 a game. That scoring mark was good for ninth in the country and she notched a top-50 finish nationally in assists per game. She was also in the top-100 nationally in free-throw percentage and field-goal percentage.
Salaman completes one of the most impressive resumes in Lincoln Memorial University women's basketball history as she finished 82 points shy of tying the career mark for points in a Lady Railsplitter uniform. As it stands, she sits alone in second place with 1,825 points. She has planted herself firmly in the record books as she ranks in the top-5 historically in ten categories and top-10 in seven others.
Salaman was joined on the team by four fellow members of South Atlantic Conference squads. Catawba's Dana Hicks, Lenoir-Rhyne's Cameron Sealey, Carson-Newman's Zoriah Williams, and Newberry's Haylee Lepaio were all named to the NCAA All-Southeast Region Second Team.
Jaymee Carnes, out of North Georgia, was named the All-Southeast Region Player of the Year.
