  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers sophomore Cappie Pondexter (Chicago, IL) has been named to the Womenscollegehoops.com All-America Second Team, the group has announced.

    Pondexter, a 5-9 guard, led RU with 18.3 points and 4.9 assists per game during her rookie campaign, adding 5.1 rebounds per contest to rank second for the Scarlet Knights. An honorable-mention Associated Press All-American as well as the 2003 BIG EAST Rookie of the Year, she also was the first rookie in conference history to earn a spot on the All-First Team. One of 12 finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award, which honors the top point guard in Division I women’s basketball, Pondexter scored in double-digits in 27 of Rutgers’ 29 games, scoring 20 or more on 14 occasions and 30 or more twice. A member of the BIG EAST All-Tournament Team, she helped Rutgers engineer the most dramatic turnaround in Division I, improving from 9-20 (.310) during the 2001-2002 season to 21-8 (.724) this season, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

    Rutgers finished the 2002-2003 season with a 21-8 overall record and a 13-3 mark in the BIG EAST Conference to finish second in the regular-season standings. The Scarlet Knights appeared in the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time in the last six years, advancing to the second round.
