MURRAY — Lawrence County product Taylor Porter was named to the Ohio Valley Conference All-Newcomer Team after a stellar freshman season at Murray State University.

Porter averaged 10.9 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. She hit 38 percent of her 3-pointers and sank 72.5 percent at the free-throw line.

Porter notched double figures in scoring in 19 contests, including a career-high 25 points against Southeast Missouri on Feb. 19. She was 10 of 16 from the floor, including 4-for-4 from 3-point range.

The 2013-14 Racers finished at 11-17, but they just lose one player to graduation.
