ISU’s Christofferson lands on another All-American team

AMES – For the second straight season, Iowa State senior Hallie Christofferson was recognized as an All-American by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

Christofferson, who was named a first-team all-Big 12 Conference player earlier this year, landed on the WBCA honorable mention team after also earning a spot on the Associated Press’ honorable mention squad.

Christofferson led the Cyclones with a points per game average of 18.4 and also grabbed a team-high 7.2 rebounds per contest and shot 46 percent from the floor. She also was among the top free throw shooters in the nation after burying 87.7 percent from the stripe this past year.

The former Exira High School standout scored in double-figures in 29 of the team’s 31 games, including 16 games with 20 or more points. She recorded eight double-doubles and shot better than 50 percent from the field in 14 games.

Christofferson is the only Cyclone to receive honorable mention honors by the WBCA in back-to-back years.

She joins Chelsea Poppens, Kelsey Bolte and Anne O’Neil as the other Cyclones to receive the honor at least once.
