BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Jennie Simms repeated as a Conference USA All-Tournament Team selection, the league office announced on Saturday. The senior guard averaged 31.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists in two games for Old Dominion.
Simms, the 2016-17 C-USA Player of the Year, posted 29 points, eight rebounds and three assists in the Lady Monarchs' 80-70 first round victory over UTEP.
