Sophomore standout guard Dyaisha Fair was named to the All-MAC First Team, and redshirt senior forward Summer Hemphill was named to the second team.
After a breakout freshman season with the Bulls, Fair earned the honor of MAC Freshman of the Year, and was Second Team All-MAC. She finished the season fourth in the nation in scoring (22 points per game), third in final points with 660, and in the top 25 in both steals per game (2.8) and total steals (83).
