BAY CITY - Saginaw Valley State University sophomore women's basketball student-athlete Emily Wendling has been named to the 2014-15 All-GLIAC Second Team after voting conducted by the league's head coaches.

The sophomore forward and Flushing, Michigan native had a stellar season for the Lady Cardinals, battling back from a knee injury that sidelined her for the entire 2013-14 season.

Wendling nearly averaged a double-double this season, going for 15.7 pgg and 9.1 rpg.  Her 15.7 ppg ranked fifth in the GLIAC and her 9.1 boards per contest tied her for third.  She was fifth with 2.9 offensive rebounds per game and her team-best 85.6 free throw percentage ranked her sixth in the conference.  Wendling recorded 10 double-doubles on the year and has 845 career points after just two seasons in an SVSU uniform.  She is just 10 made free throws away from cracking the top-10 in SVSU history, sitting with 222 career makes.

Emily was named to the Academic All-District Four First Team earlier in the season, as she maintains a 3.95 cumulative GPA as an Occupational Therapy major.  She was named the MVP of the North Star Invitational in the beginning portion of the season, leading SVSU to a 3-0 record at the event to claim the championship,
