Four Liberty women's basketball players earned ASUN Conference honors on Friday, including Keyen Green (first team all-conference), Asia Todd (all-freshman team), Ashtyn Baker (all-academic team) and Mya McMillian (all-academic team).
Green becomes the Lady Flames' first player voted to the first team All-ASUN squad since joining the conference last season. The redshirt junior from Philadelphia, Pa., has now garnered first team honors in two different conferences. She was previously a first team All-Big South performer during the 2017-18 season.
The Lady Flames' leading scorer (career-high 14.0 ppg) and rebounder (7.4 rpg), Green has stepped up during ASUN play. She has scored in double digits during 13 of 16 ASUN games, including five 20-point outings. During ASUN action, Green ranks No. 4 in the conference for scoring (15.8 ppg) and No. 5 for rebounding (7.9 rpg).
Todd, Liberty's first-ever ASUN All-Freshman Team honoree, is averaging 7.9 ppg and shooting a team-high 38.1 percent from three-point range. The Clayton, N.C., native was named ASUN Newcomer and Freshman of the Week on Tuesday following a career-high 24-point outing the previous night at Kennesaw State.
Todd scored 20 points during a Dec. 20 win over Bradley, earning MVP honors of the Roo Holiday Classic. Liberty is 17-6 since she joined the starting lineup on Nov. 29.
Baker owns a 3.60 cumulative GPA as an exercise science major. The junior point guard from Nesbit, Miss., is enjoying her best season on the court as well. The ASUN Player of the Week on Feb. 25, Baker is averaging career highs for points (11.2 ppg), rebounds (4.1 rpg) and assists (3.7 apg).
Baker posted 17.8 ppg and 5.0 apg over the final five regular-season contests, headlined by a career-high 26-point performance during a Feb. 24 win over North Florida. For the season, Baker is shooting a career-best 80.6 percent from the foul line and hit 21 straight free throws between Dec. 3-Jan. 25.
A sophomore post player from Marble Falls, Texas, McMillian is an accounting major with a 3.90 cumulative GPA. She has enjoyed a breakthrough season, boosting her scoring (2.2 to 6.1 ppg), rebounding (2.8 to 4.9 rpg) and field goal percentage (35.0 to 62.3 percent) numbers.
The Roo Holiday Classic All-Tournament Team member scored in double figures during four of the regular-season's final eight contests. Most recently, McMillian went off for a career-high 21 points and grabbed six boards on Monday at Kennesaw State.
No. 3 seed Liberty (18-11, 11-5 ASUN) will host No. 6 seed Kennesaw State (13-15, 6-10 ASUN) in an ASUN Women's Basketball Championship quarterfinal contest, Saturday at 4 p.m. inside the Vines Center.
