NORMAN, Okla. – Aaryn Ellenberg led four Sooners as All-Big 12 honorees as the conference’s women’s basketball award were announced Thursday.
Ellenberg was a unanimous selection to the All-Big 12 First Team, senior guard Morgan Hook was named to the second team, while senior center Nicole Griffin and junior guard Sharane Campbell were honorable mentions.
Oklahoma and Baylor led the league with four All-Big 12 members.
Ellenberg earned first team honors for the third consecutive season. The Las Vegas native was the league’s second leading scorer, averaging 18.7 points, and became Oklahoma’s second all-time leading scorer this season.
Ellenberg was joined on the first team by Baylor’s Nina Davis and Odyssey Sims, Iowa State’s Hallie Christofferson, Kansas center Chelsea Gardner, Oklahoma State’s Tiffany Bias, TCU’s Zahna Medley, Texas forward Nneka Enemkpali, and West Virginia’s Asya Bussie and Bria Holmes.
Hook, an honorable mention last season, averaged 11.3 points and 5.0 assists as Oklahoma’s point guard. The senior hit game winners in the final seconds of back-to-back games to lead OU to victories when it was without Ellenberg for two games in February.
Griffin was an honorable mention for the second straight season. The 6-foot-6 center scored 10.4 points per game and led the Sooners with 5.9 rebounds per game.
It was Campbell’s first All-Big 12 honor since 2012 when she earned the Sixth Man Award and a spot on the All-Freshmen Team. Campbell finished the regular season as OU’s second-leading scorer and rebounder, averaging 12.4 points and 5.2 boards.
Oklahoma, the No. 6 seed, faces 3-seed Texas Saturday, March 8, at 8:30 p.m. in a Big 12 Championship Quarterfinal at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.
