Tuesday, March 15, 2016

University of Arkansas at Monticello senior Nikki Mullen has been named an honorable mention selection to the 2015-16 All-Great American Conference (GAC). Mullen, a Green Forest native, averaged 11.6 points per game and led the team in assists (4.2) and three-pointers (43). She led the GAC in minutes played with 37.5.

Mullen had three games this season where she scored more than 20 points and had one 30-point performance, her regular season home finale against Oklahoma Baptist. She had a career high eight three-pointers and was named the GAC player of the week -- the second time Mullen had received the award.

In addition to Mullen's on-court production, she has also excelled off it. Mullen earned the Crafton Tull Distinguished Scholar Athlete Award, presented to all GAC tournament participants with a 3.70 GPA and at least 70 completed hours in college. Mullen has a 3.95 GPA and is majoring in accounting.

Mullen's teammate, Jordan Goforth, earned her second consecutive All-GAC first team award. The Lady Blossoms finished the year 13-14.
