Greensboro Collegeâ€™s Dione Eccles (Clemmons, NC/West Forsyth) is featured in the current issue (March 24) of Sports Illustrated. Ecclesâ€™ head shot photograph, and her recent basketball exploits appear in SIâ€™s popular â€œFaces in the Crowdâ€ section.
A junior guard, Eccles set a USA south record with 54 points in a conference semifinal game vs. Ferrum. A first team all conference selection, Eccles was also named the USAS tournament’s MVP. She averaged 20.2 points and led GC to a berth in the NCAA playoffs. Earlier this week, she was named to the D3Hoops.com regional third team.
Eccles becomes the second Greensboro College student-athlete to appear in Faces in the Crowd. The first was Pride volleyball Katie Smith in December of 2005.
