    Emily Potter Named to Pac-12 All-Conference Team


    Congratulations to Winnipeg's Emily Potter who has been recognized by the Pac-12 Conference as a member of its All-Conference Team and and earned All-Defensive Team Honorable Mention.

    Emily Potter was named to the Pac-12 All-Conference Team on Monday.
    This season, Potter is among the leaders in the Pac-12 in several different statistical categories. She finished the regular season second blocked shots per game (2.6), second with 14 double-doubles, third with 10.1 total rebounds per game, third with 7.0 defensive boards per contest, fifth in field goal percentage (49.6, 175-353), fifth in offensive rebounding (3.1 orpg), ninth in scoring (15.1 ppg) and 10th in free throw shooting at 69.0% (89-129) percent. She had three games with 20 or more points in league play, including a conference season-high 23 points at Oregon on Feb. 12. This is the second career all-conference honor for Potter as she was named to the All-Freshman Team in 2013-14. 


    “I’m really proud of this entire team. The whole group has done such a tremendous job of buying in to our coaching staff and working extremely hard,” Utah Head Coach Lynne Roberts said. “I’m glad to see that three of our players were recognized by the Pac-12 coaches. To be honored as some of the best in what is, without question, the best conference in the country is such a great accomplishment."

    The Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament takes place this week, March 3-6, in Seattle at KeyArena.
