Laramie, Wyoming -- For the first time in her career, Wyoming senior Hanna Zavecz was recognized by the Associated Press as an Honorable Mention All-American.
Earlier last month, she was among four individuals to be selected as regional finalists to the 2008 State Farm Coaches' All-America Basketball Team.
A 6-foot forward from Melbourne, Australia, Zavecz led the Cowgirls in scoring (13.9 points per game), rebounds (6.1 rpg), assists (3.6 aspg), steals (1.6 spg) and blocked shots (1.6 bpg) during the 2007-08 season. She shot 40.8 percent (561-1375) from the field, 70.3 percent (468-666) from the free throw line and 33.2 percent (146-440) from beyond the arc. She also ranked second in the Mountain West Conference in blocks, fourth in assist/turnover ratio, fifth in assists, seventh in scoring, 11th in steals and 12th in rebounding.
Zavecz will be remembered as one of the top players in Cowgirl history. She is a three-time First Team All-MWC selection and earned Second Team All-Conference honors during her freshman year. She earned Defensive Player of the Year honors twice and was named the MVP of the WNIT Tournament a year ago.
For her career, Zavecz ranks among the top 10 in 12 career categories at Wyoming. She is one of only 16 players in school history to reach the 1,000 point mark, and with 1,736 points she ranks fourth all-time.
The AP First Team included Candace Parker (Tennessee), Courtney Paris (Oklahoma), Candice Wiggins (Stanford), Sylvia Fowles (LSU) and Maya Moore (Connecticut).
