Godbolt Named Third-Team All-Conference




DENTON, Texas - North Texas junior forward Jasmine Godbolt was today named to the All-Sun Belt Conference third-team as the league announced its post-season awards. Godbolt is the leading scorer for the Mean Green, averaging 12.6 points a game, and ranks 11th in the Sun Belt in scoring and seventh in the league in rebounding at 7.4 boards a game.

Godbolt was the 2010 Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year but this is the first all-conference nod of her career. It is the fifth straight year for the Mean Green to have an all-conference selection. North Texas has had at least one-player selected to the all-conference team in 14 of the past 15 seasons dating back to 1998 and the Big West Conference

Earlier in the season, Godbolt became just the 13th player in school history to score 1,000 points for her career. For the year Godbolt has a team-high seven double-doubles and 23 for her career. She has scored 15 points or more 11 times this season and scored a season-high 20 points twice.

North Texas begins their quest for an NCAA Tournament bid at the Sun Belt Conference Tournament on Saturday as they face the Troy Trojans at 2:30 p.m. at the Summit Arena.
