ELLENSBURG, Wash. (Mar. 13) – Alaska Anchorage seniors Autummn Williams and Kiki Robertson were recognized among the top women’s basketball players in the NCAA Div. II West Region on Tuesday, earning D2CCA All-Region honors in voting by sports information directors.

The 6th-leading scorer in Div. II with 21.3 points per game, Williams made the five-woman first team. The Rochester, N.Y., native was a unanimous Great Northwest Athletic Conference First Team selection and the GNAC Newcomer of the Year in her lone season after transferring from Div. I Little Rock.

A 5-10 forward, she also averaged 2.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 2.6 steals per game, while shooting 50 percent from the floor, 37 percent from long range and 73 percent at the foul stripe. Williams captured the GNAC Tournament MVP, helping the Seawolves finish 30-2 overall – including a 20-0 GNAC mark – and reach as high as No. 2 in both national polls.

Just the third player in league history to earn four GNAC Player of the Week honors in the same season, Williams also broke the Seawolves’ single-season scoring record with 682 points.

Along with the other four first-team honorees, Williams now advances to the national ballot for D2CCA All-America honors.

Meanwhile, Robertson added Tuesday’s D2CCA Second Team All-West Region honor to go along with her second career GNAC Defensive Player of the Year and fourth All-GNAC Team awards. UAA and the GNAC’s all-time leader in assists (700), steals (382), games started (128) and victories (116) finished No. 18 on the NCAA Div. II career assists list, and this year she was one of just two players to rank in the nation’s top 25 in steals (3.4 spg), assists (5.3 apg) and assist/turnover ratio (2.4).

The Honolulu (Mid-Pacific Institute) native also averaged 8.9 points per contest and set UAA single-season records for total steals (109) and free throw percentage (.874), while helping the Seawolves lead the nation in steals for the fourth consecutive year.

Williams was joined on the all-region first team by player-of-the-year Cassidy Mihalko of Cal Baptist, Taylor Peacocke of Western Washington, Kamille Diaz of Cal Baptist, and Sandra Ikeora of Dominican (Calif.), while the second team was comprised of Robertson, Shomari Harris of Cal State East Bay, Jordan Wilson of Alaska Fairbanks, Ellen Kett of Simon Fraser, and Point Loma teammates Alex Brunk and Roya Rustamzada.
