ATLANTA – Alaska Anchorage junior Hannah Wandersee added another major honor to her postseason awards haul Sunday, earning honorable mention recognition on the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association NCAA Div. II All-American Team.
A 6-2 center from Kodiak, Wandersee was among 32 honorable mention performers on the WBCA’s 2017-18 All-America squad, along with 10 first-team honorees.
Wandersee led the nationally 13th-ranked Seawolves in scoring (14.8 ppg), rebounding (6.3 rpg), blocks (league-best 1.5 bpg) and field-goal percentage (.524), ranking among the league’s top eight in each category.
The unanimous First Team All-Great Northwest Athletic Conference and D2CCA Second Team All-West Region selection helped the Seawolves (27-5) earn a share of their fourth consecutive league title and advance to the NCAA Tournament’s ‘Sweet 16.’
Starting on Jan. 27, Wandersee averaged 17.5 points per contest, boosted by a career-high 32 points in an 86-78 road win over Western Oregon. She tallied six 20-plus scoring efforts on the season, including 27 points in a 78-68 home win over GNAC co-champion Northwest Nazarene, and she led the Seawolves in scoring and rebounding in the NCAA Tournament, earning a West Regional Championships All-Tournament Team nod as well.
Wandersee picked up a handful of other awards this year, including Most Outstanding Player of the Seawolf Hoops Classic, GCI Great Alaska Shootout All-Tournament Team, and the season’s first GNAC Player of the Week honor.
Already among UAA’s career leaders in scoring, blocks, field-goal percentage and free-throw percentage, she will be the leading scorer and third-leading rebounder among returning GNAC players in 2018-19.
