IRVING, Texas – The Iowa State women’s basketball team placed five student-athletes on the 2013 Academic All-Big 12 teams. The Cyclones placed four team members on the first team, while another earned second-team honors.

Senior center Anna Prins earned first-team honors for the third time in her career, joining just three other Big 12 student-athletes as three-time first-team members. Prins, a Broomfield, Colo. native, is an elementary education major. She is averaging a career-best 11.0 points per game this season.

Senior Chelsea Poppens and juniors Elly Arganbright and Hallie Christofferson were also first-team selections, while sophomore Brynn Williamson earned second-team accolades.

Christofferson, a forward from Hamlin, Iowa, took home first-team honors for the second time in her career. The graphic design major has also been a standout on the court this season, leading the Cyclones in scoring at 14.9 points per game.

Poppens, a kinesiology health sciences major, was a second-team honoree last season. The Aplington, Iowa native is averaging 12.4 points per game while shooting 50 percent from the field and 84.7 percent from the free-throw line.

Arganbright, a Panora, Iowa native, was also a first-team honoree as an English major. Arganbright has seen action in 14 games this season.

Williamson, a child, adult and family studies major from Kansas City, Mo., earned second-team honors. Williamson is one of the Cyclones’ top defenders on the court as well as one of the league’s best three-point shooters. She has connected at a 40.2 percent clip from behind the arc, which is second in the league and 22nd nationally.

The Cyclones will be back in action Thursday night at Oklahoma.
