Mitchell, Nnamaka Earn All-ACC Honors

March 3, 2008

GREENSBORO, N.C. –

Janie Mitchell and Chioma Nnamaka earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors, the league office announced Monday. Mitchell was selected to the All-ACC third team and Nnamaka was named All-ACC honorable mention.

 

“Janie and Chioma are very deserving of being named All-ACC,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “Both of these players have meant so much to our program and have had great senior seasons. For Janie to be named to the third team and be among the top 15 players in the league says a lot about the respect she has earned around the league. This is not only great recognition for Janie and Chioma but also for what their team has accomplished this season.”

 

Mitchell, a 2007 All-ACC honorable mention, is ranked fifth in the ACC in scoring with 17.1 points a game. This season, the senior from Jackson, Miss. has racked up career-highs in points, field goals, free-throws made, free-throws attempted, steals and minutes played. A team co-captain, she became only the 15th player in Georgia Tech history to score 1,000 points and grab 500 rebounds in a career and her 1,393 points ranks her eighth all-time in the Georgia Tech record books. She also ranks ninth in the Tech record books with 686 rebounds.

 

Nnamaka is a first-time All-ACC selection. The Uppsala, Sweden native ranks fifth all-time in the Georgia Tech record books in points and her 266 career three-pointers made is the most of anyone to wear a Tech uniform. This season, she leads the ACC and ranks second in the nation in three-pointers made per game with 3.2. She has become only the 16th player in the program’s history to score 1,000 points and grab 500 rebounds.

 

The Jackets (21-8) have earned the No. 5 seed in the 2008 ACC Tournament and will open play against No. 12 seed Miami Thursday at 11 a.m.
