Jacobs Named to All-Big East Freshman Team

After a strong rookie season the Bearcats freshman point guard follows in the footsteps of her fellow teammate earning conference honors.

The University of Cincinnati's Carla Jacobs was named to the 2007 All-BIG EAST Freshman Team. The 5-foot-7 rookie point guard was honored at the annual awards banquet which opened the 2007 BIG EAST Women's Basketball Championship, presented by Aéropostale.

Jacobs, a native of Cleveland, Ohio and a graduate of Regina High School, led Cincinnati in assists with 4.2 a game, sixth best in the BIG EAST. She also paces the Bearcats with a team-best 1.95 assist/turnover ratio, the best freshman mark in the conference. Jacobs also adds 8.3 points per contest.

Jacobs marks the second consecutive Bearcat to be named to the All-BIG EAST Freshman Team. Shelly Bellman was selected to the team last year, UC's inaugural season in the conference.
