For the second consecutive year, Loyola women’s basketball senior forward Allison Day brought home a personal All-Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) award — this year, she is an Honorable Mention selection as well as a member of the Scholar-Athlete Team.
Day is no stranger to all-conference awards — she was named to the First Team All-MVC for the 2020-2021 season as well as the 2018-2019 All-Freshman Team. She is the only member of the Loyola team to be named to an all-conference postseason team this season.
The Russellville, Ohio native has been a key force for the Ramblers this year, averaging 10.4 points per game as the second-highest scorer on the team behind sophomore guard Maya Chandler’s 10.6. She has also scored in double digits on 16 occasions this season, and has tallied 20 or more points in two of those games.
Day has also racked up high numbers in rebounds this year — she’s third on the Ramblers for defense rebounds this season, with 108, and second for total rebounds, with 157 and an average of 5.4 per game.
This is Day’s second consecutive season named to the Scholar-Athlete Team, currently boasting a 4.0 grade point average as she pursues her master’s in business administration at Loyola.
To be eligible for the award, athletes must be starters or “important reserves,” have played in at least three-quarters of their team’s games and have at least a 3.30 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. Students are also required to be sophomores in both academic and athletic standing and to have competed one full year at their university.
Day and the fifth-seeded Ramblers will play their first game of the 2022 MVC Tournament against the fourth-seeded Illinois State University Redbirds in Moline March 11. Tip-off is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. and the game is set to be broadcast on ESPN+.
