SAN FRANCISCO – Stanford's Lexie Hull has been named the Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the 2021-22 season. The award is presented in each of the 24 sports sponsored by the Pac-12 and was established to honor collegiate student-athletes that are standouts both academically and in their sports discipline.
A management science and engineering major, Hull will earn both her undergraduate and coterminal graduate degrees at Stanford in four years. In 2021, she became the second in program history to earn first-team CoSIDA Academic All-America honors (Chiney Ogwumike), and has twice been a member of the Pac-12 Academic Honor Roll in addition to landing on the CoSIDA Academic All-District first team three times. Hull sports an undergraduate GPA of 3.90 and has a 3.75 GPA in her graduate coursework. 
A two-time All-Pac-12 honoree (2020, 2021), Hull was also named to 2021 all-tournament teams at the Final Four and Pac-12 Tournament. She's 29th in program history with 1,284 career points and is just outside the top 10 with 176 career 3-pointers. Hull has started every game in which she has been available since she was a sophomore, a total of 92 games, and has amassed 60 double-digit scoring performances in her career, including eight double-doubles. The 2021 national champion and two-time Pac-12 champion (regular season and tournament), is in the top four among active Pac-12 players in points, rebounds (632), 3-pointers made and steals (185). 

Hull is the sixth Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year from Stanford, joining Alanna Smith (2018-19), Brittany McPhee (2017-18), Chiney Ogwumike (2013-14), Kayla Pedersen (2010-11) and Jayne Appel (2009-10).
