Additionally, this season Biggs was named the Most Valuable Player of Tech’s Hilton Garden Classic after leading the Hokies to the title with 19 points against Charlotte in the championship game.

    Biggs was second on the team in scoring (11.2) and led the team in three-point field goals with 57.

Biggs ended her career with 188 treys in which is second all-time in three-point field goals made in a career trailing only Carrie Mason (200) for the top spot.

    Fenyn (Newark, N.Y) , a university studies major, had a solid freshman season. She tied a career high with 15 points at St. John’s while pulling down a career-high nine rebounds and was named to the St. John’s-Chartwells Classic All-tournament team.
