Two Broncs Honored by the MAAC

EDISON—Senior MyNeshia McKenzie and freshman Julia Duggan of the Rider University women’s basketball team were honored by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference for their play during the 2013-14 season.

McKenzie (Springfield, Pa./Springfield (Delco)) earned First Team All-MAAC honors for the second season in a row and Duggan (Marmora/Ocean City) was named to the MAAC All-Rookie team in voting by the league head coaches, it was announced Monday afternoon.

This is a great accomplishment for ‘Mac’ to be a two-time First Team selection,” said seventh year head coach Lynn Milligan.  “She has had not only a terrific season, but career.  She has been our leader and go to player. Her teammates follow her and she wants to be there for them.”

A Second Team All-MET selection as a junior, McKenzie has started all 29 games this season, averaging a league leading 36.6 minutes per contest and she is second in the MAAC in scoring (19.5 ppg.) and rebounding (11.1 rpg.), helping Rider (13-16, 9-11 MAAC) to the sixth seed in the upcoming MAAC Championship.

McKenzie has 17 ‘double-doubles’ this season and 43 in her career and her name will now appear on the ballot for the Pepsi Max MAAC Player of the Year honors, which will be announced Friday evening.

Duggan has played in all 29 games, making 11 starts and is logging almost 18 minutes per contest while averaging 4.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.

“We are thrilled that Jules was recognized by the MAAC,” Milligan said.  “She has had a great and typical freshman season, complete with ups and downs.  But the common denominator for Jules is her work ethic and willingness to learn the game at this level.  She is very persistent in wanting to learn.  Being a post player in the MAAC is not easy.  There are some terrific post players in this league and Jules competes with them all.”

Duggan is Rider’s fifth MAAC All-Rookie honoree in Milligan’s seven seasons with Mikal Johnson honored in 2012-13, McKenzie in 2010-11, Caitlin Bopp in 2009-10 and Sarah Homan in 2008-09. 

A two-time MAAC Rookie of the Week honoree, Duggan's name will now appear on the ballot for MAAC Rookie of the Year, which will be announced Friday evening.

McKenzie is only Rider’s second First Team selection in the 17 years in the MAAC, having also earned the accolade as a junior in 2012-13 after averaging 14.2 points and 9.8 rebounds.

A former MAAC All-Rookie honoree, McKenzie was recognized with Third Team All-MAAC honors as a sophomore.

McKenzie is Rider’s all-time leading rebounder with 1,110 and she is third on the all-time scoring list with 1,560 points.

Her 119 games played are tied for the most all-time for a Rider women’s basketball player.

“MyNeshia will have played more games than any other Lady Bronc in history and her name is etched in the record books forever,” Milligan added.  “That is a very difficult thing to do based on the amount of injuries in our game.”

Rider will face 11th seed Saint Peter’s University on Thursday, March 6 at 1:30 pm, in the preliminary round of the MAAC Championship at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.
