Perkins was named All-Pac-10 honorable mention as well as Romberg. Additionally, Romberg earned All-Freshman team honors and Amojo was an honorable mention all-freshman selection.
Romberg, a 6-foot-1 guard/forward from McKinleyville, Calif., has played in all 30 games for the Cougars this season, starting 17, and averaging 9.3 points and 4.8 rebounds a game. She earned Pac-10 Player of the Week honors for the week of Jan. 31-Feb. 7 when she led the Cougars to a sweep of the Oregon schools at Beasley Coliseum. Coming off the bench in each game, Romberg averaged 16 points and six rebounds a game. The weekend series sweep over the Oregon schools marked the first time the program swept a Pac-10 series since the 2001 season.
Romberg, who is sixth in the Pac-10 in 3-point field goal percentage (.404), is the first player to be named to the All-Freshman Team since Perkins earned the honor in the 2008-09 season, and the seventh in program history.

Amojo came back this season to play in all 30 games, starting 20. She averaged 8.6 points a game and is ninth in the Pac-10 in three-points field goals made (1.6/game).
