A pair of LSU Eunice women's basketball players have been named to the Miss-Lou All-Conference team, the conference announced on Thursday.
Lida Politopoulou and Meghan Cross were two of the 12-player team, which saw two players selected from Delgado Community College and Meridian Community College, and three players from both Baton Rouge Community College and Southern-Shreveport.
"We are very happy and proud for Meghan and Lida to be the first ever Miss-Lou All-Conference players in our program at LSU Eunice. It is a well-deserved honor for both of them after the seasons they had," head coach Michael Bari said.
Politopoulou finished her lone season for the Lady Bengals with a 17.2 points per game scoring average, shooting 34 percent from the floor and 33 percent from three-point range.
She added 5.6 assists a game (151 total) and 4.8 rebounds per game (114 total) as well.
Politopoulou scored in double-digits 22 games this season, adding four double-doubles on the season - beginning with the season opener on Nov. 2 with 13 points and 12 assists against Mountain View College, a 21-point, 10 assist game on Nov. 12 against Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, finishing with 18 point and 11 assists against Palm Beach State College on Dec. 28 and adding an 11-point, 10 assist game on Jan. 16 against Delgado Community College.
One of her best games of the season came in the finale against Southern-Shreveport on March 2, when she hit seven three-pointers in the second half and nine in the game, tying the program record for most three-point baskets made in a game, which was set in January 2006 by Amanda Romero.
Politopoulou finished with 32 points in the game, tying her career-high she set back on Feb. 20 when she made eight three-point baskets in a win over Delgado.
Cross finished her freshman season averaging 12.1 points per game for the Lady Bengals, shooting 36 percent from the floor and 30 percent from three-point range in her opening campaign.
She added 6.2 rebounds per game (156 total) and 20 blocks as well.
She finished with three double-double performances this season - finishing with 13 points and 13 rebounds against Angelina College on Nov. 30, finishing with 19 points and 10 rebounds against Meridian Community College on Jan. 19, and adding a 20-point, 11 rebound effort against Baton Rouge Community College on Jan. 23.
