The National Christian School Athletic Association (NCSAA) released their national honor teams for Boys and Girls Basketball for the 2019-20 school year last week. The NCSAA annually selects All-American honor teams for both large school and small school divisions, Super Region teams, as well as National Player and Coach of the Year.
On the Girls side, Senior Ilani Williams-Harris was selected to the NCSAA All-American Third Team. Williams-Harris led CCHS in scoring, netting 16.4 ppg, and assists, handing out 4.5 apg. Ilani coupled that with 4.1 rpg and 2.9 spg, helping to lead the Lady Warriors to a 17-9 season record and the program’s sixth consecutive sectional title. Williams-Harris was also selected to the Northeast Super Region Team with fellow Senior Sania Borom. Borom was the team’s second leading scorer, averaging 10.6 ppg. Borom led the team in steals, averaging 3.2 spg, and was second on the team in rebounding, grabbing 4.7 rpg. The NCSAA honor team selections add to the list of postseason honors that the senior duo or Williams-Harris and Borom have wracked up. Both players were selected to the Circle City Conference All-Conference Team. Williams-Harris was also selected to the All-City First Team, the Hoosier Basketball Magazine Top 60 Workout, and the IBCA/Subway Small School All-State Team. Borom was chosen as the All-City Honorable Mention, the HBM Top 100, and the IBCA All-State Honorable Mention.
