Guard Kim Demmings of the Wright State women's basketball team has been selected as a Second Team Freshman All-American by Full Court.

Demmings (Richmond, IN/Richmond) put together an impressive season for the Raiders as she led all Division I freshmen in scoring at 18.4 points per game and set a WSU freshman scoring record with 626 points.  The Horizon League Co-Newcomer of the Year, Demmings was a First Team All-Horizon League selection as she finished second in the league in scoring and in assists at 4.3 per contest.  In league games, her numbers were even better as she was second in scoring at 19.7 and second in assists at 4.7.

A three-time Horizon League Player of the Week selection, Demmings scored in double figures in all 18 league games and in all but four games this season overall.  Her 38 points in an overtime win over Milwaukee on January 14 were the most by any player in the league this season and her 34 against Detroit on February 16 were the second most.  Demmings tallied 20 or more points in 12 other games and reached double figures in rebounding four times.

Demmings was also named to the league's All-Tournament Team as she scored 50 points, gathered in 16 rebounds and dished out nine assists while shooting 51 percent from the field in two games as the Raiders advanced to the semifinals.

In a 91-67 quarterfinal win over Loyola, Demmings posted a double-double of 30 points and 10 rebounds.  It was the third time this season that Demmings had scored 30 or more points in a game and was her fifth double-double of the year (one double-double was points and assists).  She was 13 of 21 from the field and added four assists.

In the semifinals against Detroit, Demmings scored 20 points with six rebounds and five assists.  She was eight of 20 from the field.

Wright State posted its most wins in its 25-year Division I history in 2011-12 as the Raiders went 21-13 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Women's Basketball Invitational for the second consecutive year.
