INDIANAPOLIS--Adrian College sophomore forward Sha'Trice Graves (Indianapolis, Ind./Lighthouse Charter School) leads the nation in blocked shots as the NCAA released the season's first set of Division III women's basketball statistical rankings on Monday.

Graves officially has 15 blocks through four games for an average of 3.75. In all Divisions, she is tied for fourth overall. She also is tied for the NCAA single-season high of eight blocks, which she established in the Nov. 9 season opener against Manchester which set a school record. She is on pace to shatter the single-season school benchmark of 64 by Ann Terpstra in 1997-98. With 45 career blocks in 24 contests, she already list 11th on the all-time chart for the Bulldogs.

In other NCAA Division III statistical rankings, Adrian shows in the top-50 of eight team categories: 10th with 22 blocked shots, 11th with 35.0 defensive rebounds per game, 17th with 68 assists, 28th with a 1.19 assist-to-turnover ratio, 31st with 185 total rebounds and 47th with 283 total points to name several. (There are 434 institutions that sponsor Division III Women's Basketball.) 

The Bulldogs will have a crosstown battle with NAIA-scholarship Siena Heights at 7:30 p.m. later today before the Thanksgiving holiday.
