Fagan and Wirt will prove just as vital for head coach Ceal Barry as her Buffs prepare for the Big 12 Conference tournament late this month. The guard-forward combination represents the team's second and third-most predominant scoring threats, combining for 23.6 per game. Additionally, Fagan is the team assist leader (78) from her starting point guard position, and Wirt is just three rebounds off Bjorklund for the team high (203).
Rounding out CU's honorees this year is flashy guard Johns-Richardson. The 5-foot-9 Fullerton, Calif., native has started 20 games this winter for the Buffaloes, averaging 7.8 points and 2.8 rebounds per game throughout.
Among the conference honorees, Texas Tech's Jolee Ayers-Curry was highlighted after being nominated with a 4.00 grade point average. The senior is currently pursuing graduate studies in Sports Management.
Four Colorado natives were also named to the list; Baylor's Jessika Stratton (Colorado Springs), Missouri's Evan Unrau (Fort Collins), and Texas' Jamie Carey (Thornton) each earned first-team honors, while Kansas State standout Chelsea Domenico (Thornton) qualified for the second team.
To qualify for the annual nomination, awarded by the College Sports Information Directors of America, student-athletes must maintain at least a 3.00 grade point average and must have participated in at least 60 percent of her team's scheduled contests.
