Logan’s Penny named preseason All-Big East

NEW YORK — DePaul senior Jasmine Penny has been chosen as preseason All-Big East in women’s basketball by the conference’s coaches.

Penny, a 6-1 senior forward from Logansport, averaged 12.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per outing for DePaul last season. She finished the year ranked 12th in the nation and second in the Big East with her 53.8 field goal percentage. Penny reached the 20-point scoring mark in five contests.

DePaul, which earned an at-large bid to the 2013 NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship a year ago, is the top choice to win the 2013-14 league title based on the results of the preseason coaches’ poll. The Blue Demons, who have seven letterwinners and three starters back from last year’s NCAA squad, finished with 79 points in the poll and received eight of 10 first-place votes.

Head coach Doug Bruno led DePaul to an overall record of 21-12 and 9-7 in the conference last season.

DePaul junior forward Brittany Hrynko has been selected preseason Player of the Year by a vote of the league’s head coaches, who were not permitted to vote for their own players. The league’s top returning scorer averaged 14.7 points per game as a sophomore and contributed 4.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals an outing.
