ATLANTA, Ga. (GC ATHLETICS)– Senior Shanteona Keys (Roswell) continues to add to the most decorated resume in Georgia College women’s basketball history. The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) released the All-America Teams for NCAA Division II, with Keys earning Honorable Mention status.

The WBCA put 10 members on the All-America Team, with 29 players in all of NCAA Division II added in as Honorable Mentions.

Keys wrapped up a monster career this season as the school’s all-time leading scorer at 1,822 points, a number also putting her sixth in Peach Belt Conference (PBC) history. She was the first four-time All-PBC recipient in school history, earning PBC Freshman of the Year as well.

The two-time Academic All-American added a spot on the Allstate Good Works Team this year, one of just two student-athletes from Division II to pick up that honor.

Keys led the Bobcats in scoring and finished fifth in the PBC this season at 17.4 points per game. Her three-point shooting of 43.8 percent also ranked first in the league.

The senior guard joins Georgia College greats Marquita Driskell and Chimere Jordan as the third All-American in school history.
