Ellensburg's Kayla Standish, whose Gonzaga basketball career ended against Kentucky in the NCAA Sweet 16, was named an Associated Press All-America honorable mention Tuesday.
Standish averaged team bests in points (16.4), rebounds (7.5), blocks (1.5) and minutes (29.5) in 34 games this season. In the postseason, she shot 50 percent from the field and 85.3 percent from the free-throw line, both higher than her season averages of 48 and 78.9.
The 6-foot-3 forward is the school leader in games played (138) and blocks (176). She also is in the school's all-time top 10 in rebounds, points, field-goal percentage and free throws made.
Standish joins Shannon Mathews (honorable mention, 2005), Stephanie Hawk (honorable mention, 2007) and Courtney Vandersloot (honorable mention, 2009, 2010; second team, 2011) as the only Gonzaga women's players to be honored by the Associated Press.
