Kassidy Bonebrake
MATTOON--Three Lady Lakers currently grace the Top-100 national rankings for individual statistics in the NJCAA Division II Women's Basketball, ranging from a 96th to a 16th ranking.

Sophomore, Kassidy Bonebrake (Crawfordsville, IN; Crawfordsville High School) holds five Top-100 national rankings, her lowest coming in just under the Top-100 line, a national ranking of 96th for a 34.9% three point shooting average.

Bonebrake ranks 87th in the country in total points scored with 233.

The sophomore from Crawfordsville's last three national rankings go Top-30. Sixty-two total free throws made earns Bonebrake a 30th ranking. Making free throws at a 80.5% clip gives here a national ranking of 28th. In the fourth quarter of one game this season, Bonebrake drained 14-out-of-14 free tosses, helping her team outlast a tough opponent. (Bonebrake had six three-pointers in the same game and reached a collegiate career high of 32 points. Without her 14 free throws made, Bonebrake would have fallen short of her former collegiate high by one point.)

Out of 14 games in double-figure scoring, Bonebrake has reached double-digits three times due to free throws made.

Bonebrake's best national ranking is 16th, earning by hitting 45 total three-pointers. Twice this season, Bonebrake has hit her collegiate career high of six three-pointers in a game.

Jay'La Davis
Sophomore, Jay'La Davis (St. Louis, MO; Cardinal Ritter High School), holds two national rankings. Davis ranks 28th in the country for her 4.5 assists per game average.

Davis lays claim to a national ranking of 24th for her 77 total assists. The sophomore out of St. Louis has had at least one or more assists in all 17 of this season's games.

Davis achieved a collegiate career assists high earlier this season of 10 in a game where she went double-double, popping for 12 points.

As the main point guard and playmaker for the Lady Lakers, Davis has a proven consistency her teammates rely upon to get their half-court game going.

Dymond Randle
Another sophomore, Dymond Randle (St. Louis, MO; Metro High School), currently ranks 64th in the nation for shooting 50.6% from the field. Randle had fallen out of the rankings briefly when she failed to meet the minimum required shot attempts, but her continued efforts in offensive low post play may see her remain on the national list of high percentage shooters.

Randle marked a collegiate career high her last game by shooting 100% from the field in a five-for-five effort, eclipsing a 83.5% effort from early in her freshman season.

The Lady Lakers best rankings as a team are as follows:
  • 24th ... free throw percentage at 68.3%
  • 33rd ... assists per game at 15.7
  • 38th ... defensive rebounds per game at 26.9
  • 39th ... three point shooting percentage at 31.1%
