GREENSBORO, N.C. – Florida State women’s basketball freshman Angela Sutton, who hails from Cleveland, Tennessee, has been named this week’s Atlantic Coast Conference co-Rookie of the Week, league officials announced today.
Sutton, a 5-10 guard, scored 17 points, grabbed three rebounds, had two assists and three steals in just 16 minutes of play off of the bench in FSU’s 30-point win over Long Beach State on Sunday in the first round of the 1998 Tallahassee Democrat Seminole Classic. The rookie went 6-for-10 from the field and 5-for-8 from the charity stripe.
Sutton becomes the second FSU freshman to earn the honor this season. Last week, fellow guard April Traylor was named this season’s first ACC Rookie of the Week.
