Marble Named Peach Belt Preseason All-Conference

Augusta, GA – North Georgia’s Syretha Marble has been named to the Peach Belt Preseason All-Conference Team announced this afternoon by the league office. Marble is the only player in PBC history to be named to the team in consecutive years.

Marble finished the 2007-08 season averaging 20.6 points per game and 10.1 rebounds per game and was one of only two players to average a double double in the Peach Belt Conference. She was named PBC All-Conference, First-Team All-Region, and Third-Team All-American.

Marble finished last season ranked 12th in the nation in scoring and 24th in rebounding and had 17 double-doubles to her credit, including a 26-point and 13-rebound performance in the quarterfinals of the PBC tournament. She was a two-time PBC player of the week of the week last season, and is a defending PBC Preseason All-Conference award winner.

Now beginning her senior year, the Canton, Ga., native was named the 2006 PBC Freshman of the Year and is seeking to become a four-time All-Conference performer in 2008. She is also just 99 points away from cracking the PBC’s top 10 career scoring list.
