KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced the 2017-18 Division I Women’s Basketball All-America Teams on Thursday. Dajonee Hale of Central Methodist (Mo.) was named the 2018 NAIA National Player of the Year.

Hale was a key player in helping her team to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in school history. The Eagles were eliminated from the tournament by 2018 national champion Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.). In that game Hale set a season high of 29 field goal attempts.

Following the conclusion of the national championship title game on Tuesday, Dale Neal of Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) was named the 2017-18 NAIA Division I Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year. Coach Neal has been the head coach of the Lions for 24 years and they have made 22 championship tournament appearance (including 2018). The 2018 season saw Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) claim their first title in only their second appearance in the championship game.

All of the selections are made by the All-America Committee and comprises a First, Second, Third and Honorable Mention Team. There are 10 members on each of the first three All-America teams.
