Fuchs-Robetin, Giardina Earn WBCA All-America Honors

ATLANTA, GA - Florida Southern College women's basketball standouts Anja Fuchs-Robetin and Camille Giardina have been named as honorable mention all-Americans, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced this week. The duo was previously recognized the D2 Conference Commissioner's Association (D2CCA) as first team all-South Region honorees and earned first team all-conference accolades from the Sunshine State Conference earlier this month.

The pair helped the Moccasins win both the Sunshine State Conference regular-season and tournament titles, and earn the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Division II South Region Tournament - the third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance for the Mocs.

Fuchs-Robetin, the SSC Player of the Year, finished the season averaging 18.6 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game. She was the SSC Player of the Week twice this season and also earned five SSC Defensive Player of the Week honors. A CoSIDA Academic all-district and third team all-America selection, Fuchs-Robetin tallied the fourth triple-double in program history with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists against Rollins on Feb. 7.

Giardina averaged 19.9 points per game, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.9 steals. She was named as the SSC Player of the Week on Feb. 5 and was named as the MVP of the SSC Tournament earlier this month. She posted 19 performances with at least 20 points including four games with 30 or more points, one of which was a 33-point performance against Embry-Riddle in the SSC championship game.

Florida Southern women's basketball has earned a combined 15 WBCA all-America honors including six first-team selections and nine honorable mention honors. The awards for Fuchs-Robetin and Giardina mark the first time since 2005 that a Moccasin has earned an all-America nod from the WBCA. It is the third time in program history that two players have earned WBCA all-America honors in the same year.
