N.Y. – The State University of New York at New Paltz women's basketball team has earned two 2014-15 All-State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) honors, announced on Tuesday.
 
Sophomore guard/forward Kit Small (Slingerlands, N.Y./Academy of the Holy Names) was named to the Second Team while senior guard Shannan Walker (Vestal, N.Y./Vestal) earned Third-Team accolades. Both selections are career firsts.
 
Small led the Hawks in scoring this season, averaging 12.0 ppg. The sophomore was tied for first with 2.2 assists per game and was second on the team in rebounding (6.2 rpg), steals (1.6 spg), field goal percentage (37.6 percent) and minutes played (25.0 mpg). Small finished the 2014-15 campaign scoring double figures in 15 of the final 16 contests.
 
Walker, meanwhile, wrapped up her collegiate career tied for second on the team in scoring, averaging 8.1 ppg. The senior made a team-high 57 three-pointers, shooting 33.5 percent from long distance, and shot 28-of-38 from the foul line (73.7 percent). Walker led the team in playing time (27.9 mpg) and was third on the team in assists (1.9 apg) and fourth in steals (1.3 spg).
 
Walker ranked fourth in the SUNYAC in both three-point field goal percentage (33.5 percent) and three-pointers made per game (2.1). For her career, Walker notched 132 three-pointers and dished out 188 assists, tied for eighth-most in program history.
 
Small and Walker helped lead the Hawks to the No. 3 seed in the 2015 SUNYAC Women's Basketball Tournament, earning a quarterfinal win over No. 6 seed Buffalo State before falling to No. 2 seed SUNY Cortland in the semifinals.
 
Under the guidance of ninth-year head coach Jamie Seward – who earned his 150th career win this season – New Paltz ended the season 18-9 overall (13-5 SUNYAC), marking a drastic turnaround after a 6-19 (4-14 SUNYAC) record in 2013-14. Small and Walker become the 15th and 16th players, respectively, under Seward to earn All-SUNYAC accolades.
