Its official: Griffin an All-American (Basketball)
Eagle River’s Kelsey Griffin became the second woman from Alaska to earn NCAA Division I All-American honors after she was selected to the First Team today.
Griffin, of Chugiak High fame, joined Sitka’s Andrea Lloyd-Curry of the University of Texas, on the very selective list of All-Americans from The Last Frontier.
Griffin averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds en route to being named Big 12 Player of the Year and leading the University of Nebraska to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.
The 6-foot-2 senior missed all of last season with a foot injury but bounced back nicely to earn All-America honors.
Lloyd-Curry was a three-time All-American (1985-87), national champion (‘87) and Olympic gold medalist (‘88).
Griffin finished her college career with 2,033 points and 1,019 rebounds.
