IRVING, Texas – TCU junior middle blocker Yvonne Igodan has earned All-Big 12 Honorable Mention accolades, the league office announced Monday.
Igodan posted career-high numbers of 3.24 kills per set and a hitting percentage of .323. She finished the season ranked fifth in the league in kills and sixth in hitting percentage. Igodan also chipped in 0.76 blocks per set for 3.65 points per set.
The Houston native twice earned Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week honors (Sept. 4 and Nov. 12). With her honor on Sept. 4, she became the first TCU athlete across any sport to earn a Big 12 weekly honor.
Igodan led the Frogs in kills 16 times during the season and posted a team-high 16 double-digit kill matches. Her 24 kills on 44 attacks against Army on Sept. 1 were a career high and the most a Frog had in a match this season.
With a .722 attack percentage at Kansas State on Nov. 10, she posted the league’s highest hitting percentage in a Big 12 match this season.
TCU closed the season last Saturday with a 3-0 win over West Virginia for a 15-14 record in its first season of play in the Big 12. It was the eighth time in 11 seasons under Prentice Lewis that the Frogs finished the year with a winning record.
