FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU senior Yvonne Igodan was named to the 2013 Preseason All-Big 12 Team, the league office announced Tuesday.

The 6-foot-2 middle blocker was one of nine players who were unanimous selections for the team. This is the second year in a row Igodan has garnered the honor after being named to the 2012 Preseason All-Big 12 Team.

 “We are thrilled to have Yvonne on the Big 12 preseason list again and we are looking forward to a great season again,” coach Prentice Lewis says.

A 2012 All-Big 12 honorable mention selection, Igodan appeared in all 29 matches for the Horned Frogs during her junior season. The Houston native led the team in total kills (311), kills per set (3.24) and attack percentage (.323), while also earning Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week twice in 2012.

TCU opens the 2013 season on Aug. 30 against Furman in Athens, Ga. The Frogs begin their second season in the Big 12 against defending National Champion Texas on Sept. 25 at 6:30 p.m., at the University Recreation Center.
