Humboldt State Athletics

By Ray Hamill — The postseason accolades continue to pile up for Humboldt State senior Alexia Thrower.

After earlier being named to the CCAA all-conference first team, on Monday Thrower was included in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) NCAA Division II Coaches’ All-American Team.

Thrower, who averaged 22.6 points and 9.6 rebounds per game this season for the 15-13 Lumberjacks, was included among the honorable mentions and becomes the fifth player in HSU history to earn the honor.

The Jacks senior led the conference in scoring and was second in rebounds, and was also named to the all-region first team for the second time in her career.

She was the CCAA player of the week an impressive five times this season.

Thrower becomes the first Lumberjack to earn the all-American honor since Brittney Taylor in 2010. 

Other HSU players to win the award include Katie Franci (2008-09), Katie Wilder (2006-07) and Christi Rosvald (1982-83).
