WBB: Ashley Joens named WBCA region finalist

The following is a press release from Iowa State Athletics Communications:

ATLANTA – Iowa State women’s basketball’s Ashley Joens added yet another honor to her storied senior campaign as she was named one of 52 region finalists by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

Joens’ season has been anything short of stellar, averaging 20.5 points and 9.6 rebounds. She has connected on a career-best 90 3-pointers and is shooting at a career-best 37.8 percent clip. The Iowa City, Iowa native helped the Cyclones to a program record 28 wins and to the first Sweet 16 appearance since 2010.

Joens was recently named a Second-Team All-American by the Associated Press, becoming just the fourth Cyclone to be named to an All-America team.

Joens’ selection as a Region 3 Finalist puts her under consideration for the prestigious 10-member WBCA Coaches All-America Team, which will be announced on Thursday, March 31.
