East Bladen’s Lacey Suggs has been named to the All-Cape Fear Region Basketball First Team by the Fayetteville Observer.
Suggs has already been honored as the Four County Conference Player of the Year and as a North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association District 4 First Team selection. The 5-10 junior was earlier chosen to the Wilmington Star-News All-Area Girls Basketball First Team.
Suggs, a junior, averaged over 22 points per game as she led the Lady Eagles to a 26-1 record and the Sectional Finals where they were eliminated by eventual Class 2-A State Runner-up Kinston.
The 5-10 junior also contributed 6 rebounds, 6.5 steals and 3 assists per game, while shooting 54 percent from the field. “Lacey is so versatile and plays so hard,” said East Bladen Coach Patty Evers. “She is one of the best players that I have coached.”
Suggs matched her previous career-high with a 32-point outburst in a 53-26 December win over East Columbus, then surpassed it with a 40-point game against Union.
In the Lady Eagles’ second win over East Columbus, Suggs cracked the 1,000 point mark for her career and posted a double-double with 10 steals. She just missed a triple double with 17 points, 14 rebounds and 8 steals in a 51-12 win over Midway.Share:
