AMES, Iowa – Iowa State junior forward Chelsea Poppens has been recognized as an honorable mention All-American by The Associated Press.

Poppens, an Aplington, Iowa native, was the only Big 12 player to average a double-double this season. She averaged a career-best 14.2 points and 10.6 rebounds en route to being named one of three unanimous selections to the All-Big 12 first team. Poppens’ 317 rebounds make her just the second Cyclone to grab over 300 in a season. Former Cyclone All-American Angie Welle accomplished the feat in 2001 and 2002.

Poppens led the Big 12 in offensive rebounds, grabbing 4.4 per game, and shot 49.8 percent from the field. She improved from the free-throw line as a junior, shooting 71.3 percent from the charity stripe after entering the season as a 64.1 percent shooter.
