CHICAGO –- Moline product Miranda Geever was selected to the All-Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference's second team for women's basketball this week.

The junior led No. 23 nationally-ranked Olivet Nazarene to a 23-8 record. The Tigers made an early exit from the league tournament, though, and are waiting to hear today if they will receive an at-large bid to the NAIA Division II national tournament.

Geever ranks second in the nation in assist/turnover ratio (2.696), leading the Tigers with 124 assists, to average 4 per game, opposite a mere 46 turnovers.

Geever also sits 11th nationally in steals with 95, and averages 10.8 points per game, shooting 116-of-225 (.455) from the field.
