Yoyo Nogic Named All-BIG EAST Honorable Mention

March 1, 2017

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The BIG EAST Conference released its 2017 All-BIG EAST selections and major award winners on March 1. Sophomore guard Yoyo Nogic (Lisbon, Portugal) represented Providence College as an All-BIG EAST Honorable Mention selection. Nogic is one of 16 players league-wide who earned All-BIG EAST First Team, Second Team or Honorable Mention accolades. Nogic also is one of seven sophomores to earn league honors.

Nogic is the first Friar to earn post-season league honors since the 2013-14 season, when Alexis Harris was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team and Sarah Beal was recognized as an All-Freshman Team selection. Overall, Nogic is the 28th player in program history to earn All-BIG EAST recognition as a member of the First, Second, Third or Honorable Mention squads.

Entering the BIG EAST Tournament, Nogic leads the Friars in scoring (14.7 ppg) and steals (1.3 spg) and also contributes 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. Nogic is one of the top three-point shooting threats in the country, and ranks eighth in the nation in three-point field goals made (91), 13th in three-point field goals made per game (3.14) and 16th in three-point field-goal percentage (.431, 91-211).

Nogic completed the regular-season shooting 43.4-percent from the field (151-348) and 94.1-percent from the free-throw line (32-34). She recorded a team-best 23 double-digit scoring games and four 20+ point games.

The Friars finished in a three-way tie for seventh place in the BIG EAST regular-season standings, with a 4-14 mark, and will enter the tournament as the No. 9 seed by virtue of tie-breaking procedures. Providence will face No. 8 seed Seton Hall in the first round on Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Providence is seeking its first BIG EAST Tournament victory since 2001, when it defeated Seton Hall, 72-61, in Storrs, Conn. Since then, the Friars have lost 11-consecutive tournament games. Seven of the 11 losses during the streak were decided by 10 points or less.
