Bente Rogge Named to NCAA All-Tournament First Team
LOS ANGELES, Calif.-- On Monday, the NCAA announced the All-Tournament team selection from the NCAA Championship Tournament play. Bente Rogge was the lone Sun Devil, but her stellar weekend earned her a spot on the All-Tournament First-Team.
In the quarterfinal round against Michigan, Rogge scored two goals which punched her ticket to the 150 career goals club. She became just the eighth Sun Devil in program history to hit this career milestone, and finished her career eighth in all-time goals scored. Rogge has been a dominant player defensively for ASU, and further backed up her stellar defensive season with four steals, two field blocks, and one drawn exclusion against the Wolverines. Her all-around efforts helped lead the team to the program's first appearance in the semifinal round.

The Sun Devils faced MPSF conference foe, USC, in the semifinal round and Rogge recorded her 40th goal of the season with one against the Trojans. Her defensive efforts helped ASU hold USC to their lowest scoring game of the NCAA tournament, as she tacked on four more steals, one field block, and two drawn exclusions.
She finished the season with 40 goals and 28 assists for 68 points, and is in the top six in career goals scored (151) and career points recorded (151-54) in program history. Rogge led the team with 40 steals, putting her at third best in the NCAA, and 26 field blocks which led the NCAA. This honor comes after Rogge was named to the All-MPSF First-Team as well as the MPSF All-Tournament Team after the Championship Tournament.
