Honorable Mention: Syndee Fipps

With her amazing performance throughout the 2013-14 season, junior forward Sydnee Fipps was named to the All-Big West Conference First Team for the second-straight season on March 10. As a leading player on the team, Fipps played hard in every game, and her consistent and great performance was the key element for all the victories the Aggies had for the past season.

Since her first season, Fipps managed not to pick up any major injuries along the way, as she appeared in every single game throughout the last three seasons. By making a three-pointer in the first half against UC Santa Barbara on Feb. 1, Fipps became the 16th player in the history of the women’s basketball program at UC Davis to reach the milestone 1,000 points. By the end of this season, Fipps hit the 20-point mark 15 times this season and she is currently ranked seventh place in the UC Davis scoring charts with 1,183 points.

With all of her accomplishments in the last three years — especially her outstanding play this season, averaging 17.8 points per game and 5.9 rebounds per game  — Fipps is worthy of being recognized as an honorable mention.
