AMES, Iowa – Iowa State women’s basketball senior forward Hallie Christofferson was named to the John R. Wooden Award Women’s Preseason Top 30, the Los Angeles Athletic Club announced today.

Last season Christofferson led the Cyclones in field goal percentage (.516), three-point percentage (.401), free-throw percentage (.862) and points per game (15.6), becoming the only returning player in the country to do so.

Christofferson was also one of just two players nationally to shoot .500 from the field, .400 from beyond the arc and .800 from the charity stripe last season.

The unanimous All-Big 12 selection and honorable mention All-American is one of three players to make the list from the Big 12 Conference, joining Oklahoma’s Aaryn Ellenberg and Baylor’s Odyssey Sims.

The Wooden Award is one of the most prestigious individual honors in college basketball and is bestowed upon the nation’s best player. The winners will be honored at the 38th annual Wooden Award Gala presented by Wendy’s the weekend of April 11-13.
