Western Nebraska Community College women’s basketball player Karli Seay had been selected of one of 40 sophomore-to-be participants to play NJCAA Women’s Basketball Coaches Association all-Star Weekend in Atlanta, Georgia this summer.
The event will take place July 26-29 at Georgia State University.
The all-star weekend will feature NJCAA student-athletes who are entering their sophomore year after competing at an NJCAA member school during the 2017-18 season. This year’s event features some of the top talent from all three divisions, including NJCAA DIII Spalding® Player of the Year Kayla Wilson of Hostos (NY).
Seay helped the WNCC women’s basketball team to a 29-5 record and an at-large berth to the NJCAA national tournament last year. Seay, of Chicago, averaged 14.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 4.9 assists a game.
Seay set a new single-game scoring record when she poured in 48 points in an away game at Eastern Wyoming College. The previous single-game record of 38 points was set in 1980.
Seay is the only Region IX returner to be selected to the all-star game.
