College basketball: Sharaya Selsor moves up Mesa’s scoring list
GOLDEN — Glenwood Springs High School product Sharaya Selsor moved even further up the women’s basketball scoring chart at Colorado Mesa University on Saturday night, scoring a game-high 19 points to help the fifth-ranked Mavericks beat Colorado School of Mines, 67-61, in a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference game.
Selsor, a senior at Mesa, finished 7-of-18 shooting from the field with four assists. She was the only player in the game on either team who played all 40 minutes. Coming into the weekend, Mesa, which improved to 12-0 overall and 8-0 in RMAC play, was one of only 10 Division II women’s basketball teams in the nation that were unbeaten.
The performance from Selsor on Saturday gave her 1,053 career points at Mesa, which ranks her 16th on the school’s career list and just two points behind Carrie Dixon 1,055.
On Friday, Selsor hit a running jumper as time expired to lift the Mavericks to a 67-65 victory over Colorado Christian in Lakewood in a rematch of last year’s RMAC Tournament Championship game. She finished the game with a game-high 21 points to go with seven rebounds and five assists.
Selsor’s outing on Friday lifted her above her younger sister, Katrina, on Mesa’s all-time scoring list. Katrina Selsor, who graduated from Mesa last year, is now 17th on the all-time scoring list with 1,028 points.
Sharaya and Katrina Selsor, both GSHS graduates, played for Mesa last season when the Mavs finished 31-2 and reached the Division II Elite Eight for the first time in school history.
Through Saturday’s game, Sharaya Selsor is averaging an RMAC-best 25.8 points per game. She’s also shooting 88.2 percent from the free throw line (90 of 102) and 40.8 percent (29 for 71) from beyond the 3-point line. Her 29 3-pointers are more than any other player in the conference.
She’s also ranked third in the RMAC in 3-point shooting percentage, and her 55 assists in 12 games is ranked second in the RMAC.
The Mavericks play again Friday and Saturday when they host Colorado State-Pueblo and the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs at Brownson Arena in Grand Junction.
