Little Rock senior Ronjanae DeGray has been named one of 10 selections to the Division I-AAA Athletic Director’s Association (ADA) 17th annual Scholar-Athlete team, announced today by the organization.
DeGray, the 2018-19 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, played a pivotal role in helping Little Rock to a share of the conference regular season title with a 15-3 mark in Sun Belt play as well as leading the Trojans to the Sun Belt tournament title and the program’s sixth NCAA tournament appearance.
The Odessa, Texas native averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 rebounds for Little Rock, finishing the year with 464 and 223 rebounds, both of which were just shy of cracking the program’s all-time top-10 for points in a season. She was named the Sun Belt’s Player of the Week twice and was named to the 2019 Sun Belt All-Tournament team.
For her career, DeGray was a part of 65 Sun Belt Conference wins, joined by her sister Raeyana DeGray for the most in program history. Ronjane closes out her storied Trojan career ranking eighth all-time in Trojan history in both points (1,234) and rebounds (589) while sitting fifth all-time in offensive rebounds (219).
In addition to her abilities on the court, DeGray has been just as efficient off as well. She boasts a 3.42 GPA, majoring in special education, and has been active in a number of community and campus-wide initiatives.
To be eligible for the team, each of the nominees is required to maintain a minimum GPA of 3.2 on a 4.0 scale in undergraduate study and have been a starter or important reserve with legitimate athletics credentials. Nominees must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s games during the 2018-19 season. The team members were selected by a committee consisting of Division I-AAA athletic directors from across the country.
