Noyes, Perkins Receive All-Conference Honors
March 6, 2012
Perkins received All-Pac-12 honorable mention and All-Defensive Team honorable mention, as voted on by the Pac-12 coaches and was also placed on the All-Defensive First Team by the Pac-12's women's basketball media members. The Berkeley, Calif. native earns her third career all-conference honorable mention accolade and second career all-defensive team honor. Perkins finished the regular season with a conference-best 79 steals and led the Cougs in conference play with 8.2 ppg, 7.8 rpg and six double-doubles. The senior guard set WSU's all-time record for games played and became the only player in school history, men's or women's, to record over 1,000 points, 700 rebounds and 250 steals in a career.
Noyes picks up her first career all-conference accolade, earning all-defensive team honorable mention. The junior forward led the Cougs with 11 blocks while matching up against the opponent's top low post players during conference play. Noyes averaged 6.2 ppg in Pac-12 games.
Washington State has had multiple players receive all-conference recognition in each of head coach June Daugherty's five seasons at WSU.
Stanford senior Nnemkadi Ogwumike was voted the Pac-12 Player of the Year for the second time in three years while younger sister and teammate sophomore Chiney Ogwumike was honored as the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, while Washington's Jazmine Davis was selected the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year. Stanford head coach Tara VanDerveer was also voted the John R. Wooden Coach of the Year by her colleagues, the 12th time in her career and second-straight year she has won the award. The Conference Coach of the Year honor was renamed in honor of the late John R. Wooden, former legendary UCLA coach, during the 2010-11 campaign.
