DENTON, Texas – North Texas outside hitter Eboni Godfrey added yet another accolade to her resume following a standout rookie season – the first Mean Green freshman to ever earn All-Sun Belt Tournament honors.
Godfrey, who became the first NT freshman to earn All-Sun Belt Conference honors since Corina Marginas in 2000, made her presence felt at the SBC Tournament with 4.14 kills per set on .247 hitting.
Godfrey was instrumental in helping the Mean Green upset No. 3 seed Arkansas State with a double-double in the tournament quarterfinals, and led NT offensively in the semifinals against No. 2 Middle Tennessee.
Only four North Texas players have ever been named to a Sun Belt Conference Tournament team – Corina Marginas (2003), Brittney Gregory (2006), Amy Huddleston (2010) and Godfrey.
The Mean Green finished the year at 17-17, which gives North Texas back-to-back seasons of .500 or better for the first time since the founding of the program in 1976 and 1977.
