Caitlin Malcolm 07 was rewarded for her strong season by being named a finalist for the Division III All-America Honors by the Womens Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). This nomination comes as a capstone to the year that saw Malcolm reach new heights as a dominant force for the Judges.

She led the Judges in scoring with 16.5 points per game, which was second in the UAA and led the team in rebounding with 8.3 rebounds per game, good for fifth in the league. Malcolm also tied for the UAA lead in double-doubles, recording eight. Of the 25 games that Brandeis played, Malcolm had the game-high in points 16 times and was the leading rebounder 18 times. She reached double-digits in points in 22 out of the 24 games she played in, her season high being a 33 point explosion against regional rival Tufts back on January 17 (she also lead the rebounding with 15 in that game).

Malcolm achieved a milestone by scoring 1,000 points faster than any player in Brandeis womens team history. As of the off-season, she currently has 1,111 career points and 611 rebounds, which places her fourth in both categories under Brandeis school records.

This season saw Malcolm get awarded the UAA Player of the Week Award twice and Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Weekly honors once. This is the second year in a row that Malcolm has been named a finalist for D-III All-America Honors.
