For the second straight season, Florida State’s Alicia Gladden has been named to the All-ACC third team. Gladden, a 5-11 senior guard from Orange Park, Florida, leads the Seminoles in scoring at 14.0 points per game and is second in rebounding at 6.0 rebounds per game and is the team leader with 63 steals. Gladden has scored in double figures in 23 games overall and led the team in scoring 11 times. She averaged 15.0 points per game in ACC play.
Overall, Gladden ranks 15th in the ACC in scoring is ninth in the league in steals per game at 2.17. She has been among the team leaders in either points, rebounds, assists, blocks or steals in 24 of FSU’s 29 games this season. Another thing Gladden has done that no one else on the team has done is score eight or more points in all 29 games.
Gladden has scored 407 points this season which is more than she has scored in any other season at FSU. She’s also had seven or more rebounds in 14 games this season. Typically not a long-range shooter, Gladden has hit a personal single-season best nine three-pointers this season. She became the 20th member of the 1,000 point club at FSU in the second game of the season and now has 1,352 career points which ranks 9th all-time at FSU. With 265 career steals, including a team-high 63 steals this season, she is second all-time in career steals at FSU and is just four steals shy of tying Tia Paschal for the school leader.
Gladden and the Seminoles will face Wake Forest, Thursday, March 1st at 11 a.m. in the first round of the 2007 ACC Tournament in Greensboro, N.C.
