Student-athletes must hold a 3.5 cumulative grade point average, be at least a sophomore in academic standing and have been enrolled in at least one full year at their current institution to be eligible for the award.

Falls, a sophomore, is a psychology major. One of the most consistent players in the league, Falls received First Team All-SLIAC honors after averaging a team-best 15.4 points per game while shooting a league-high 57.2 percent from the field and snagging 10.5 rebounds per game.

She tallied the most made free throws of anyone in the league with 123 in 161 tries, the most rebounds (263), the fourth-most field goals (131 of 229), the fourth-most total points (395) and the fifth-most points per game 15. She also notched 44 steals and 42 assists

Zulz, a senior art and digital media and design major, was one of only three four-year members of the Red Devils this season. He was a part of the senior class that finished with 60 wins in four years, making it EC's winningest class in four years. The senior reserve was also EC's representative on the SLIAC All-Sportsmanship Team.
