The NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) has announced their Basketball All-American squad for 2014-15. Alice Lloyd College senior sensation Carla Booth was named to the Honorable Mention team.
Booth had an impressive season for the Lady Eagles. She averaged 23.92 points, 4.56 rebounds, 2.56 assists, and 2.96 steals per game per game. Her scoring mark was good enough to rank second in the nation as well as leading the KIAC Conference. Additionally, she also finished in the top 5 in the conference in both steals and free throw percentage, and was in the top 10 in both field goal and 3 point field goal percentage. Recently, Booth was selected as First Team All KIAC by the league’s coaches; this marks the third consecutive year she has received that honor. Furthermore, during the season, she was chosen as Conference Player of the Week.
Booth also broke the women’s school single game scoring mark on January 10th when she tossed in 45 points in a victory at conference foe Brescia University. She also connected on 22 free throws in that contest (out of 23 attempts), which were the most individual free throws made in a single game in NAIA Division 2 this season.
Booth, a Sports and Fitness major, is the daughter of Tommy and Tammy Booth of Warfield, KY.
