FRANKFORT, KY - Kayla Styles has been named the Mid-South Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Year, conference officials announced on Wednesday night at the annual conference awards banquet held at the Capital Plaza Hotel.
Styles becomes just the fourth Blue Raider in program history to earn Player of the Year honors, joining former recipients Terran Duncan (2006-07), Viktoria Krell (2008-09) and Ashley Rainey (2012-13).
Styles has averaged 16.9 points and 11.1 rebounds per game this season, both rank second in the conference. The junior from Louisville, Kentucky holds a 55.2 shooting percentage, the third highest in the MSC and 10th nationally, to go along with a 71.0 free throw percentage. Her 14 double-doubles are the most in the conference this season and she leads the MSC with 1.84 blocks per game. The All-MSC First Team selection leads the Blue Raiders in points per game, rebounds per game and total blocks (46). She also has 35 steals and 69 assists playing in her first full season as a Blue Raider.
Along with Styles, Chanel Roberts also received All-MSC First Team honors, while Kayla Richardson and J'Nayah Hall were named to the Second Team.
Roberts earns First Team honors for the third time in her career, also collecting the award as a sophomore and junior. The senior is averaging 15.2 points per game, the second most on the team and third most in the MSC, while starting 27 out of 28 games. She owns a 39.1 three-point shooting percentage to go along with 4.5 rebounds per game, 61 assists, 11 blocks and a team-high 40 steals. The forward from Radcliff, Kentucky holds a 56.2 shooting percentage, the second best in the conference and sixth highest nationally.
Richardson averages 9.8 points and 2.4 rebounds per game while leading the team with 43 made three pointers. The senior from Louisville, Kentucky has been a staple in the women's basketball program the previous four seasons. Out of 125 possible games, Richardson has started 123 during her four-year career, including a streak of 96-consecutive starts. The former MSC Freshman of the Year has played in all 125 games. Her 33.3 three-point shooting percentage is the eighth best in the conference this year while her 1.77 assist-to-turnover ratio is the fifth best. Richardson adds 62 assists and 27 steals this season. She becomes just the second Blue Raider in program history to earn all-conference honors four times.
Hall earns Second Team honors in her first season playing with the Blue Raiders. The Owensboro, Kentucky native racked up 9.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season with a 53.1 field-goal percentage. Hall has 58 assists, nine blocks, 31 steals and four double-doubles to her credit this year.
Shawnee State's (Ohio) Brandie Snow, Madison Ridout and Jeff Nickel were named Freshman of the Year, Defender of the Year and Coach of the Year, respectively. Shawnee State's Jenna Brown was named the Champions of Character award recipient.
