    All-American chances

    So, Pop was Honorable Mention All-American last season. ISU started promoting this again this year. Her concussion tripped up her statistics, though they are coming back up, and her accomplishments are significant.

    Hallie is having an All Conference season. Maybe more?

    What are the chances that we could get two All-Americans this year?

    It looks like that has happened only once before, Frese and Welle in 2000.

    I'd say it's possible, but not sure how likely. They both deserve the recognition, without question.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    The 2000 team won both the regular season and tournament conference championships, only lost 5 games during the regular season, were ranked in the top 15 pretty much the entire season and went to the sweet 16 where they lost to a final four team.

    I think you can make a case for two all conference picks, but I just don't see two all americans.

    Re: All-American chances

    The balance of our current team is why are doing so well, the downfall is AA are usually players who are often solo stars on teams(outside the prima donna teams).

    Pop might still get on the AA list, simply because ISU has been doing a good PR campaign around it.

    For all-conference, Hallie and Pop should be first team, and Nikki probably some recognition. But it is hard, because there is so much talent in this league this year.
