Gustafson joins some good company on the team

NCAA Womens Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Greensboro Regional - NC State vs Iowa Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Iowa’s Megan Gustafson has been having nothing short of a sensational season, and the sporting world has taken notice:

The senior from Port Wing, WI., is the first-ever player in Iowa women’s basketball history to ever earn first-team all-America honors. Gustafson, who earned second-team honors last year, leads the nation in scoring at 27.9 points a game, a field goal percentage at 70.1, leads the nation in double-doubles at 33 (she played 35 games this year) field goals made (403) and total points (978). She ranks second in defensive rebounds per game (11), and third in rebounds per game (13.5) and total rebounds (472).

On the first team, Gustafson joins UConn’s Napheesa Collier, Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu, Asia Durr of Louisville, and Teaira McCowan of Mississippi State. Kalani Brown and Lauren Cox, who are on the Baylor squad Iowa faces tonight, made second and third team honors, respectively.

The entire list of AP all-Americans can be found here. By my count, Iowa is the only school to have a player on the first team, but no other players make the second, third, or honorable mention squads.
