Bravard earns Atlantic Coast Conference honors


Tallahassee, Fla. – Perkins’ Cierra Bravard capped off her freshman season at Florida State, earning Atlantic Coast Conference All-Freshman team honors.

Bravard averaged 9.7 points and nearly five rebounds per game, while playing in all 34 games, including 15 starts. The Seminoles finished 26-8 overall, but lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament to Arizona State, 63-58.

Bravard was named the ACC Rookie Of The Week twice this season.

The first time in January, she helped the Seminoles to three-straight wins, including a victory over No. 3 Texas A&M. In just 17.7 minutes coming off the bench, Bravard averaged 13.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game during the three-game streak.

Her second Rookie of the Week honor, Bravard recorded her first double-double in ACC play, and second in her career, with 16 points and 10 rebounds – both team-highs – to help the Seminoles to a 77-70 win over No. 7 North Carolina.

Bravard was a four-year letter winner at Sandusky Perkins and left as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 1,966 points. As a senior, she was named the Ohio Player of the Year and was a WBCA All-America selection, among other accolades. She was also an All-Ohio selection in her sophomore and junior season, after getting honorable mention her freshman year.
