BOONEVILLE – Northeast Mississippi Community College sophomore sensation Anna Brooke Page added to her accolades after being selected to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s (NJCAA) Region XXIII Team and the 2012 Mississippi Association of Community & Junior Colleges (MACJC) All-Star line up.

Page was the only member selected both honors off the 2011-12 Lady Tiger basketball team, which is under the direction of first-year Lady Tiger head coach Brian Alexander.

“I am happy for Anna Brooke,” Alexander said. “She was our most valuable player this season and she did a great job leading our team into the post season.”

Page led the team in scoring averaging 18.5 points per game.

“Anna Brooke also finished in the NJCAA’s Top 30 for scoring nationally,” Alexander said. “I know she will do well in this year’s all-star event.”

Page was instrumental in the success of the Lady Tigers in her two-year campaign at Northeast.

During her freshman season, the Belmont High School product propelled the Lady Tigers into the postseason averaging 17.8 points per game. As an upper classman, Page pushed Northeast into the playoffs once again in 2012.

Page collected 825 total points in her two-year stint at Northeast and averaged 60 percent shooting from the floor during that time.

“Whoever lands Anna Brooke at the next level will be very please with her addition to their program,” Alexander said. “She will definitely have a big impact at the next level.”

This year’s women’s All-Star game will be held at East Central Community College in Decatur on March 27 with the women set to tip off at 5 p.m.
