FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University senior Jennifer Brabson was recently named to the Women’s Division II Bulletin All-America Team (fourth team) and to the 2000 Daktronics Inc. All-America Team (honorable mention). Senior teammate Chiffonia Adderson earned honorable mention All-America recognition from the Women’s Division II Bulletin.
Brabson, a 5-8 guard-forward from Knoxville, Tenn., led the Peach Belt Athletic Conference in scoring (18.8 points per game) and was second in free throw percentage (school-record 85.8%). She also averaged 5.7 rebounds per game.
She ended her career owning 11 school records and six PBAC marks. She is the conference’s all-time scoring leader with 2,217 points, a figure that also places her 18th on the all-time Division II scoring list. She is the only player in the storied 27-year history of the Patriot program to amass 2,000 points, 700 rebounds, 200 assists, and 200 steals.
Adderson, a 6-0 center from Nesmith, S.C., ranked sixth in the conference in rebounding (7.3 rpg) and 11th in scoring (14.1 ppg). She shot 46.8 percent from the floor, and led the Patriots in steals (60).
Adderson concluded her career as one of only five Patriots to surpass the 1,000-mark in both career scoring (1,897) and rebounding (1,051), while blocking 167 shots, the second-highest total in PBAC and FMU history.
This past season, Brabson and Adderson helped lead the Patriots to a 25-8 record, the North Division championship of the PBAC, and the program’s third straight appearance in the NCAA Division II Sweet Sixteen. During their four seasons at FMU, the Patriots compiled a 103-22 combined record. They are the only players in PBAC cage history to garner All-Conference honors four times.
