Three Buffs Earn Preseason Honors

Oct 24, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO – Colorado's Jaylyn Sherrod, Quay Miller and Kindyll Wetta each earned Preseason All-Conference honors on Monday, leading into the league's annual media day on Tuesday.

Sherrod was the lone Buffalo to land on the All-Conference tea. Miller and Wetta both earned honorable mentions.

"I'm very proud of all three of our selections," head coach JR Payne noted. "To be listed among some of the nation's most elite players is fantastic and well deserved. What I love the most is that all three of our ladies are as great off the court as they are on. They are excellent teammates and students. I'm proud to have them representing our program and know that they will continue to make us proud."

The preseason honors were selected by 28 media members who cover the league, the 15-person Preseason All-Conference Team mirrors the Conference's postseason process.

Sherrod, a senior from Birmingham, Ala., started all 31 games in CU's run to the NCAA Tournament last season. She closed the season with a career-high 27 points against Creighton in the Buffs' tournament game, posting season-highs in field goals made (11) and field goals attempted (15). Sherrod finished third in the Pac-12 last season with 55 steals and was fifth in steals per game (1.77), assists per game (3.8) and assist-turnover ratio (1.72).

Miller, a senior from Renton, Wash., is the reigning Pac-12 Sixth Player of the Year. She played in all 31 games in her first year at CU and posted a career-high 330 points on the season. She posted a season-high 20 points off the bench on two occasions last season and is the team's top-returning scoring with her 10.6 points per game.

Wetta, a sophomore from Castle Rock, Colo., became the first player in Pac-12 history to be both All-Freshman and All-Defensive team selections in 2022. She finished second in the conference with 66 steals and 2.13 steals per game. Her 66 steals were the most by a CU freshman since Bridget Turner's 73 in 1985-86. Wetta set a Colorado record for steals in a quarter with six in the second quarter at Arizona State last season. She handed out 86 assists in her rookie season and averaged 4.5 points per game.

Both Sherrod and Miller will join Payne at the Pac-12 headquarters for media day festivities on Tuesday.
