BUIES CREEK, N.C. --- Campbell's Summer Price has been named a first team selection to the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA) All-State women's basketball team. A total of 10 student-athletes from six North Carolina Division I institutions were represented.

Price is the sixth different Camel in program history to receive all-state honors since the award's inception in 2006. The Beaverdam, Virginia native was the team's leading scorer at 13.4 points per game, which ranked sixth in the Big South Conference. Price recorded 23 double-figure scoring efforts, which included seven 20-point performances. She scored a season-high 23 points versus VCU.

The junior guard was an All-Big South second team selection after ranking fifth in the league in three-pointers per game (1.7) and sixth in three-point percentage (.333). Price's overall field goal percentage (.408) stood ninth in the conference. She also averaged 18.3 points per game between six games from January 17-February 4.

Price and the Camels finished the 2016-17 campaign with a 21-10 overall record, the program's eighth 20-win campaign. Campbell, under Big South Coach of the Year Ronny Fisher, finished second in the conference and earned a berth to the Women's Basketball Invitational. It was the program's first postseason appearance since 2000.

Charlotte led all schools with four selections, including a pair of first team picks, while Big South foe High Point followed with a pair of honorees. The Panthers' Emma Bockrath, the Big South Player of the Year, joined Price as a first team selection.
