WICHITA, Kan. - Shann Sellers did pretty much whatever she wanted on the court for the Friends University Women's Basketball team during the 2016-2017 season, with opposing defenses (and offenses) unable to do anything about it most of the time. Sellers leading the NAIA in both scoring and steals throughout the year has been voted the No. 7 moment of 2016-2017 by the Falcon coaches and staff.

Sellers scored in double figures in all 34 of the Falcon's games during the season, and topped the 30-point mark eight times, averaging 24.4 points per game. She had 13 double-doubles, averaging 8.2 rebounds per game.

Sellers was even more impressive on the defensive end. She needed just 18 games to set the program record for single-season steals (107), and set the NAIA record (160) in 26 games, breaking a 24-year old record. Sellers would shatter the national mark, finishing the season with 220 thefts, averaging 6.5 per game. She just missed the NAIA single-game record of 15 steals, nabbing 14 at Bethany on February 16th.

In 27 of the Falcon's 34 games, Sellers had at least five steals.

The prowess on the defensive end allowed Sellers to record the program's first triple-double when she had 25 points, 10 steals and 10 rebounds against rival Southwestern on February 11th. She would add another a couple of weeks later (February 23rd) in the KCAC Tournament Quarterfinals against Oklahoma Wesleyan with 24 points, 11 steals and 10 rebounds.

Come back next week for the next two moments in the countdown.
