Bob Jones University Lady Bruins basketball guard Hannah Tompkins was given Second Team All-American honors by the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) for Division II.

Tompkins became one of the first basketball players in program history to be named to the All-American team.

Tompkins, a resident of Ararat, led the Lady Bruins to a 16-19 record on the season as the senior guard became just the second player in program history to score 1,000 career points. She was dominant from the outside as she led the nation in three-point field goal percentage for the season.

She averaged 12.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while also serving as a co-captain of the team. Her 432 points on the season set a new single-season scoring record for the program.

Tompkins helped to lead the Bruins through adversity as the team had several losses in personnel throughout the season. Still, the team battled through the challenges as they captured their first-ever NCCAA DII South Region Championship with victories over Piedmont International University, Trinity College and Pensacola Christian College. This earned the Lady Bruins the #4 seed at the national tournament.

The team had a disappointing end to the season as they fell to #5 seeded Maranatha Baptist University and #6 seeded Pensacola Christian College to end their chances at a national championship.

“Hannah exemplifies the type of athlete we want in our program,” Bruins head women’s basketball coach Mike LeViere said. “She is Christ-centered, hard-working and highly skilled. This recognition is rightly deserved as she led the nation in several categories throughout the season. We’re so thrilled for her and excited for the future God has for her.”

Bob Jones University is located in Greenville, S.C. The Bruins are members of the National Christian College Athletic Association and compete in Division II.
