Former Rutgers star Epiphanny Prince earned Second Team All-WNBA honors for the first time in her career Thursday for her stellar play in the 2015 season.
While averaging 15 points, 3 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game, Prince led the New York Liberty to the Eastern Conference Finals, a feat the team has not accomplished since 2010. Although the Liberty eventually fell to the Indiana Fever, Prince put up huge numbers in the team's lone victory of the three-game series, as she went 4-6 from the 3-point line and finished with 17 points.
The tremendous honor of being named to the Second Team All-WNBA team caps a special 2015 season for the 27 year old guard. Teamed with Tina Charles, she helped the Liberty to a franchise record 23 wins, securing a top seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time ever.
Prince also had other notable individual accomplishments this season:
-August Eastern Conference Player of the Month
-Eastern Conference Player of the Week (twice in August)
-Scored in double digits for her first 12 games with the Liberty
-In a win against the Chicago Sky, Prince finished with 30 points, on 11-14 shooting, setting a league record for most points scored in the first game against a former team
