Shelton Named to Preseason All-SLC Team
Shelton, a 6-3 redshirt senior from Ft. Worth, Texas, averaged 8.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in 2012-13, her first season on ORU’s active roster. The SMU transfer shot 65.5% from the field last year, an ORU single-season record, and she upped her averages to 10.8 points and 6.9 rebounds per game in Southland Conference play.
Shelton was also a defensive force in her first season with ORU, blocking 34 shots in 30 appearances. The senior swatted six shots in ORU’s NCAA Tournament matchup with Tennessee, helping the Golden Eagles tie a Thompson-Boling Arena record for blocked shots by a Lady Vol opponent.
The Golden Eagles open the 2013-14 season on Friday, November 8 when they host USAO in the annual TTCU Best Field Trip ever game. Tipoff is scheduled for 12 pm CT, with live video available to ELIve subscribers at ORUGoldenEagles.com.
