Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe capped her final season at Simon Fraser University as the Great Northwest Athletic Conference women's basketball player of the year.
Raincock-Ekunwe finished the regular season as the conference's third leading scorer, averaging 16.9 points per game and the top rebounder with 12.7 boards per.
The fifth-year senior leads the NCAA Division II with a 66.1 field goal percentage. She also ranks third in rebounding and in double-doubles, with 18.
Raincock-Ekunwe earned first-team all-conference honours for the third straight year. She is just the second player in conference history to accomplish that feat, joining Rebecca Kielpinski of Alaska Anchorage (200709).
Raincock-Ekunwe, Montana State Billings guard Bobbi Knudsen and Northwest Nazarene forward Megan Hingston were the only unanimous selections. Knudsen was also a repeat selection from last year's first team.
Simon Fraser guard Erin Chambers was selected the Great Northwest defensive player of the year.
Chambers helped lead a Clan defense that allowed a conference-low 55.0 points per game.
Joining Chambers on the second all-star team was fifth-year guard Kristina Collins.
SFU will play the quarter-final winner between third-seeded Montana State Billings and sixth seed Seattle Pacific in Lacey, Washington on Friday.
