Hassell also ranked No. 14 in the nation in field goal percentage, connecting on 53.1 percent of her shots from the floor.

"It's something I've dreamed about since I was a little kid and now my dream has come true," Hassell said.

"I've dreamed about it, but I didn't know if in a million years if it would come true. It's just a blessing from God. You're just sitting there waiting and then all of a sudden your name pops up and you think 'Is that really my name that just came up?' I wouldn't be where I am today without the help of the coaching staff here at Georgia and so many people who have helped me since I was a little kid. So many people helped develop and motivate me, and I'm just so very, very thankful for all of them."

Georgia finished the 2012-13 campaign with a 28-7 record overall and a 12-4 mark in SEC play. The Lady Bulldogs ranked No. 10 in the final edition of the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll after advancing to the "Elite Eight" round of the NCAA Tournament.

A four-year starter for Coach Bud Brandon at Wilson Central, Hassell helped lead the Lady Wildcats to state titles in 2006 (ninth grader) and 2008 (senior).

Her mother, Gail Corder Hassell, starred at Lebanon High and went on to play collegiately at Belmont from 1981-84 and was the Bruins' career scoring leader at the end of her career.
