First player in Hanover women's basketball program history to receive the first team nod from D3hoops

Hanover women's basketball junior Alexis Nall (Mount Vernon, Ind.)made history Monday afternoon, as she was announced as a first team all-Great Lakes region selection by D3hoops.com.

Nall, who was the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Most Valuable Player during the 2018-19 season, was one of three league players to receive recognition from D3hoops. Rose-Hulman's Ally Bromenschenkel and Transylvania's Shelby Boyle were each named to the third team all-region. The junior is the first player in Hanover women's basketball program history to receive the first team nod from D3hoops.

During a career-season, Nall averaged 18.4 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game, all of which were also team highs this winter. Additionally, the junior broke her own school record for single season field goal percentage, shooting 59.1 percent from the floor, which ranks among the top 10 marks in the country.

Her performance inside of conference play included 19.5 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.4 steals per outing, while shooting over 60 percent from the floor. For her efforts, the junior became just the third player in program history to receive the HCAC MVP award. Nall was also selected to the HCAC's all-tournament team after averaging a double-double, 18.0 points and 13.0 rebounds per game, as the Panthers advanced to the semifinal round.

Additional season stats from Nall include shooting over 80 percent from the foul line and 45 percent from three-point range. If she had attempted more three pointers earlier in the season and continued at the same clip, the junior would have been among the nation's top three-point shooters as a forward. Nall also recorded 15 double-doubles this season, ranking inside the top 25 for most in Division III. She even posted a game of 30 points and 20 rebounds this winter. Hanover concluded the 2018-19 season with a 19-8 overall record, including a 14-4 tally in HCAC play. Both marks set new program highs under head coach John Jones, who was in his fourth season at the helm of the Blue and Red. The Panthers were the HCAC Tournament's No. 3 seed, as the squad qualified for the postseason event for the third straight year, while also making the semifinal round for the second consecutive season.
