Conference USA announced its women’s basketball All-Conference teams and two North Texas Mean Green players took home awards for the 2017-2018 regular season.

Junior guard Terriell Bradley was selected to the C-USA All-Conference First Team. The de facto leader of Jalie Mitchell’s team, Bradley was third in the conference in scoring at 18.8 points per game. The redshirt transfer from the University of Kansas starred in her second season with the Mean Green.

Last season, she led the team as a sophomore with 12.8 points per game. In 28 games this season, all starts, she finished second in conference play with 148 free throws and third with an 83 percent success rate. She also placed in the top ten with 51 3-pointers.

Additionally, she averaged 5.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. Bradley fulfilled her destiny as a preseason All-Conference Team member and was twice named C-USA Player of the Week.

On Feb. 8 at Florida International University, Bradley registered a career-high 32 points and converted on a program-record nine 3-pointers on just 10 total tries. She also scored her thousandth point late in conference play and her total of 527 points this season ranks as fourth-most in program history.

Freshman guard Lauren Holmes was honored as well, being named to the C-USA All-Freshman Team. Holmes, a first-year player from Fayetteville, Arkansas, finished second in scoring for North Texas with 8.9 points per game and tied for third in the conference with 2.1 steals per game.

She appeared in 26 games, starting 17, and averaged 4.7 rebounds per game while also shooting 78 percent from the free throw line. On Jan. 13, against upcoming tournament opponent University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Holmes made a corner three with 27 seconds left to help the Mean Green secure the win.

Holmes is the sixth North Texas freshman to be named to a conference all-freshman team and the first since UNT moved to C-USA. She also won three C-USA Player of the Week awards during the season.
