Fulmore named to All-PBC squad

Francis Marion University sophomore forward Shaunice Fulmore has been selected to the 2017 Peach Belt Conference All-Conference Basketball Team.  The honor was announced at the PBC Basketball Awards Banquet held on Friday evening (March 3) in Greenwood, S.C.

Fulmore was named to the five-member second-team squad.  Last year, she was honored as the conference's Freshman of the Year.

A 5-10 native of Lake City, S.C., Fulmore is second in the conference in scoring at 17.1 points per game, while also ranking sixth in steals (63), 12th in blocked shots (26), 15th in minutes played (32.4 per contest), 24th in field goal percentage (43.0%), and 26th in rebounding (5.7 rpg).

She has also connected on 42.9 percent of her three-point attempts, is shooting 72.2 percent at the foul line, and has registered three double-doubles.  She is second on the team in assists (1.8 per game) and has scored in double-figures in 28 of 29 games, including eight 20-point contests.

Fulmore has helped lead FMU to an 18-11 record, including a recent nine-game winning streak, and a second-place finish in the PBC's East Division standings.  The Patriots will play top-seed and fourth-ranked Columbus State University (26-1) in the Peach Belt semifinals on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. in Greenwood, S.C.

She was named the PBC Player of the Week for the first week of February and was named to the FMU Swamp Fox Athletic-Academic Honor Roll for her work in the classroom during the 2016 fall semester.

In only two seasons, she has career totals of 800 points, 286 rebounds, and 99 steals.

Fulmore was an All-State player at Lake City High School.
