Alicia Gladden Earns All-ACC Third Team Honors

Feb. 27, 2006

The 2006 All-ACC Women’s Basketball teams were announced Monday afternoon and Florida State junior Alicia Gladden was named to the third team. Gladden, a 5-11 guard from Orange Park, Florida, leads the Seminoles in both scoring at 13.1 points per game and rebounding at 6.3 rebounds per game and is the team leader with 58 steals. Gladden has scored in double figures in the last 11 straight games and 21 games overall and has six double-doubles to her credit this season.

“Alicia has been so steady for us this season, especially in ACC play,” Florida State head coach Sue Semrau said. “Already a great defender, she really stepped up her offensive game this season and has become a real go-to player for us.”

Gladden ranks 12th in the ACC in scoring and is tied for 16th place in rebounding. She also ranks seventh in the league in steals per game at 2.15. She has led the Seminoles in scoring four times and in rebounding in nine contests. Overall, she has been among the team leaders in either points, rebounds, assists, blocks or steals in 24 of FSU’s 27 games this season. Another thing Gladden has done that no one else on the team has done is score six or more points in all 27 games.

Gladden and the Seminoles recorded a program-best 10 ACC wins this season and earned a fourth-place finish in the ACC, the number one ranked conference in RPI rankings. Florida State received a first round bye in the 2006 ACC Tournament and will face either NC State or Clemson Friday, March 3rd at 4 p.m.
