Stony Brook, N.Y. - Senior Sam Landers (Springfield, Va.) has been named the captain of the Stony Brook women's basketball team, head coach Beth O'Boyle announced Thursday.

"Sam is a proven leader who will help lead the program on and off the court," O'Boyle said. "She graduated in three years, Summa Cum Laude, and is now working toward her master's degree. She's just a tremendous student-athlete."

Last year, Landers led the team with a 91.2% clip at the free-throw line and ranks fourth all-time at Stony Brook with a .756 career free-throw percentage.
