Mompremier Named AP All-America Honorable Mention
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Beatrice Mompremier of the University of Miami women’s basketball earned Associated Press All-America Honorable Mention distinction, as announced Monday afternoon.
Mompremier is the first Hurricane to garner postseason recognition from the AP since 2011-12, when Shenise Johnson was a Second Team All-American and Riquna Williams was a Third-Team All-American.
A redshirt junior forward, Mompremier is one of 33 players nationally on the AP’s list, including one of 18 in the honorable mention category. Seven ACC players made the cut, with Mompremier one of three in the honorable mention section.
Mompremier led Miami in both points (16.7) and rebounds (12.2) per game this year, with the latter mark setting a program single-season record. She also logged the second-most total rebounds (401) and the seventh-most free-throw attempts (178) in a campaign by a Hurricane.
A Miami native, Mompremier led the ACC with 25 double-doubles in her first season playing for the Hurricanes. She notched 20 points in eight of her 33 outings and had at least 12 in all but four of them.
Mompremier grabbed at least 15 rebounds seven times, twice tallied 20-plus and had one 20-20 performance.
A First Team All-ACC selection and WBCA Coaches’ All-America Team Regional Finalist, Mompremier is one of five finalists for the Lisa Leslie Center of the Year Award.
