FLORENCE, S.C. - Francis Marion University forwards Louis McCullough and Creshenda Singletary were recently named to the Peach Belt Conference All-Conference basketball squads, with Singletary also earning PBC “Freshman of the Year” recognition.
McCullough, a three-time All-PBC selection, was named to the first team for the second consecutive year. Singletary was voted to the women’s All-PBC second team.
McCullough becomes only the fifth men’s basketball player in PBC history to earn All-Conference honors three times. Singletary is the third FMU women’s hoops player to earn “Freshman of the Year” recognition, joining Chiffonia Adderson (1997) and Damita Bullock (1998).

He also compiled 18 steals.
Despite missing several games with an injury, he recorded four double-doubles and scored in double figures in 17 of 24 games, including six 20-point contests, as the Patriots finished 10-17.
He ends his career as one of only two Patriots to amass 1,000 points, 600 rebounds, 100 blocked shots, and 100 steals during a career. He stands second on the Patriot career scoring (1,714), rebounding (811), and blocked shots (152) lists. He also ranks eighth all-time in team history for steals (118) and 22nd in assists (157).
Singletary, a 5-10 freshman from Johnsonville, averaged 12.4 ppg and 5.4 rpg. She was the top scoring freshman in the conference. She compiled 29 steals, 26 assists, and 13 blocked shots, while shooting 46.3 percent from the floor, eighth best in the PBC. She was second on the team in minutes played, averaging 28.5 minutes per game. She recorded two double-doubles, and scored in double figures 17 times this past season, including five 20-point games.
She helped lead a young FMU squad, which included three freshmen starters, to an 11-17 record and a fourth-place finish in the PBC’s North Division standings.
