Broncos Colson honored

Sophomore Reyana Colson capped her second season at Cal Poly Pomona in style when she was named an Honorable Mention All-American, according to the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

Colson, a Compton native, was the leading scorer for the Broncos this past season with 16.8 points per game. She scored in double figures in each of her 25 games played for the Broncos, who finished 16-14 overall.

“This is a great honor for her and shows how far she has come in a short time,” Broncos coach Scott Davis said. “She’s the key to our success. It says a lot for her work ethic and means a great deal to our program. Reyana is the one that everyone has a game-plan for her. Teams plan around her ability.”

Colson finished second in scoring 16.8 points (overall games), sixth in rebounds, second in assists and tied for first in steals and a league-leading 17.1 points in only CCAA games. She had 9 double-doubles including a conference-best 11 assists in a game played at Humboldt State.

Colson was named to the WBCA State Farm Region 8 first team, Daktronics West Region first team and was a first-team All-CCAA selection. As a freshman, she was the conference’s Freshman of the Year and also a second-team selection.

Off the court, she was named to the 2009 CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District 8 first team.
