USF women’s basketball redshirt sophomore guard Enna Pehadzic was named to the All-ACC second team today, while true freshman Sydni Harvey was named to the all-freshman team, the conference announced.
Looking strictly at her stats this year, Pehadzic’s 30% shooting from the field would give most people pause, but given the circumstances of the Bulls’ season, she turned into a volume shooter and the coaches recognized that and gave her a much-deserved spot.
Pehadzic missed her entire freshman season due to a torn ACL, then played in only nine games last season due to the recovery and re-injury, never playing more than 11 minutes in any of those nine games.
Due to the injuries to just about everyone on this year’s roster, Pehadzic has had to play extensive minutes, including playing all 40 minutes in five games which had a stretch of five games where she played all but five minutes.
She led the team in scoring with 11.8 points per game and has scored at least 20 points in six games this year, topped by the 35-point outburst at ECU in February. She averaged 15.4 PPG during conference play.
She also has added 5.3 rebounds per game, including four double digit rebounding games and has had three double-doubles. She averaged 6.4 boards per conference game.
Harvey was tabbed as the opening night starter at point guard to replace graduated Laia Flores and did an admirable job during her first year in college.
Harvey averaged 11.4 PPG this year, good for second on the team among qualifiers and started 24 games before missing three games due to a concussion. She scored more than 20 points twice, including a career-high 25 points versus Tulane in January.
