IOWA CITY — For the third consecutive year, the University of Iowa has an Associated Press women’s basketball All-American.
Senior guard Kathleen Doyle was tabbed to the third team. Each of the three teams consist of five players, so the AP essentially named her as one of the top 15 players in the nation.
Iowa State’s Ashley Joens, a sophomore from Iowa City, is an honorable-mention pick.
Doyle follows Megan Gustafson, a second-teamer in 2018 and a first-teamer in 2019.
A native of LaGrange Park, Ill., Doyle finished the season ranking in the top-50 nationally in five statistical categories, including sixth in the nation in total assists (189), seventh in assists per game (6.3), 19th in free throws made (147), 37th in total points (544), and 49th in points per game (18.1).
She was the Big Ten player of the year. She is the seventh Hawkeye to earn AP All-American honors.
