ROCK HILL, S.C. — After the most successful season for the Lady Railsplitters since the 2003-04 campaign, two key members of the squad were presented with some postseason hardware. Lincoln Memorial University junior guard Aisjah Roan was named to the All-South Atlantic Conference first team, while senior MaRanda Boddie collected honorable mention accolades, the league office announced on Wednesday with the unveiling of the 2013-14 women’s basketball awards.

2013-14 proved to be a resurgent season for the Lady Railsplitters (16-10, 15-7 SAC), who posted the winningest season for the women’s basketball program since the 2003-04 squad notched a 21-8 record under current athletic director Roger Vannoy. With that, Lincoln Memorial ripped off 15 conference wins — the most in program history — to leap to third in the final league standings. After opening the year with a 4-6 mark through the first 10 games, the Lady Railsplitters closed with 12 wins in their last 16 games.

Roan led the Lady Railsplitters with 15.2 points per game, ranking eighth in the conference, while adding 5.6 boards and 2.5 assists per game. The Louisville native racked up the seventh-most field goals in the league with 144 on 42.5 percent shooting (11th in SAC). She added to her offensive repertoire by nailing 104 free throws, the fifth-most in the SAC this season. Roan’s presence was felt just as intensely on the defensive end as she amassed 61 steals to finish second in the SAC.

Boddie led the Lady Railsplitters with 7.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per while contributing 8.7 points a night. The three-year starter ranked fifth in the league in field-goal percentage with a 49.7 percent mark, fifth in offensive rebounds with 74, sixth in rebounds per game, and second in total blocks with 53.

When Boddie completes her tenure with the Lady Railsplitters, her named will be scattered throughout the school’s career record book. She holds the career record for blocks with 160, while ranking first all-time in blocked shots average with 2.0, sixth all-time in rebounds with 662, 12th all-time in minutes played with 2,398 and 16th all-time in games started with 81.
