Hollingshed Selected Honorable Mention WBCA All-America
ATLANTA – Colorado senior Mya Hollingshed was bestowed honorable mention All-America honors by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association on Saturday, capping off an exciting 24 hours for the Buffaloes star.
The honor from the WBCA is the first for a Colorado player since Shelley Sheetz's first-team selection for the 1994-95 season. Colorado's last All-America selection was Chucky Jeffery's honorable mention AP All-America after the 2012-13 season.
Hollingshed, a Pac-12 All-Conference selection, concluded the season averaging the best numbers of her career. She led the Buffs in both points (15.4 ppg) and rebounds (7.8 rpg). Hollingshed scored double figures in 20 of CU's 23 games this season. She recorded 10 or more points in 18 straight games, from Dec. 6 to Mar. 19.
The Houston, Texas, native, is eighth in the Pac-12 with 355 points scored this season. She became the 32nd player in program history to surpass 1,000 career points, finishing the season with 1,244 points (22nd all-time). She snagged 179 rebounds this season (3rd Pac-12), giving her 681 for her career (15th all-time).
Hollingshed earned Pac-12 Player of the Week following her career-high 32 point performance in CU's 77-72 overtime win over then-No. 1 Stanford. She also notched a career-high 17 rebounds at Arizona State. Hollingshed leads the Pac-12 with eight double-doubles this season, giving her 16 on her career. She also scored 20 or more points in four games this season, giving her 13 career 20-point games.
Saturday's news comes fresh off Hollingshed's declaration to return to the Buffs for a fifth season. Returning to Boulder, she has a chance to become the 13th player to score more than 1,500 career points and chase down Rachel Hargis's record for games played (134). Hollingshed has appeared in 110 games in her career, starting 79. She is averaging 11.3 points, 6.2 rebounds (12th all-time) and a 44.3 field goal percentage. She is also 14th at CU with 111 career 3-point field goals made.
