Leger-Walker Earns Second WBCA All-American Honorable Mention Nod
MINNEAPOLIS – Washington State women's basketball sophomore Charlisse Leger-Walker was named to the 2021-21 Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-American honorable mention team Thursday, March 31. It is Leger-Walker's second-consecutive WBCA All-American honorable mention selection.
The guard from Waikato, New Zealand was one of nine Pac-12 Conference players to be named to the WBCA All-American team. Leger-Walker is the first WSU player to earn an All-American distinction from the WBCA, earning the honor in 2020-21 and in 2021-22.
Leger-Walker had a spectacular sophomore season, in which she was named All-Pac-12 for the second-straight season. The sophomore ended the 2021-22 regular season as the Pac-12 leader in points scored for the second-consecutive year, as she scored 483 points. The guard also had the most 20-point games collected by a Pac-12 player this season, eclipsing the 20-point plateau 11 times.
Washington State capped off a historic 2021-22 campaign that saw the Cougars make a return trip to the NCAA Tournament in back-to-back- seasons for the first time in program history. WSU collected 19 wins overall in 2021-22, which is the most wins in a single season in the NCAA era in program history. The Cougs also posted their highest finish ever in the Pac-12 Conference by going 11-6 to finish in a tie for second place. The 11 conference wins also sets a program record for most Pac-12 victories in a season.
