CALDWELL, N.J. – Caldwell University has announced that senior forward Emily Caswell (Wakefield, RI/Prout School) was named a Division II All-American in women’s basketball from two organizations. Caswell was selected to the Daktronics All-America second team, while also receiving All-American honorable mention from the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association. Both Daktronics and WBCA Division II All-American teams were released on Monday.

The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Player of the Year, Caswell had an outstanding senior season for the Cougars, recording a Division II-best 24 double-doubles while ranking second nationally in rebounding and 10th in scoring. She also led the CACC in field goals made (226), free throws made (164) and defensive rebounds per game (11.9), while ranking fourth in free throw percentage (83.2) and ninth in field goal percentage (47.2). A four-time CACC and ECAC Player of the Week, Caswell set the school record for rebounds in a season (421), while scoring more points this year (624) than any Cougar since the 1991-92 campaign.

Caswell ends her career at Caldwell with 1,486 points and 929 rebounds to rank among the program's all-time leaders. During her four years, she helped the Cougars advance to the semifinals of the CACC Tournament four times, including appearances in the championship game in 2012 and 2013. This season, Caswell led Caldwell to a 19-11 record and a share of the CACC North Division title with a 15-4 mark in conference play. The Cougars fell to Philadelphia University in the CACC semifinals on March 6.

Also a strong student, Caswell was chosen to the Capital One Academic All-American third team last month. She also made the CACC All-Academic Team and was selected Caldwell’s nominee for NJAIAW Woman of the Year.

The Cougars now have had an All-American in back-to-back years, as Caswell follows Jeanette Anderson, who also made the Daktronics All-America second team and received All-American honorable mention from the WBCA last season. Caswell is the seventh Caldwell women’s basketball All-American in the history of the program, joining Danielle Ciresi (1991), Monica Snook (1992-93), Nicole Campbell (1996-97), Antrinette Barrino (2000, 2002), Gwendolyn Gunn (2000) and Anderson (2014).

The Daktronics all-Region and All-American teams are selected by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The WBCA All-American teams are voted on by a selection committee consisting of one representative from each of the eight geographical regions and a chairperson.
