Another honor has been announced for ISU forwards Hallie Christofferson and Chelsea Poppens but this time, it’s on a national stage.

The Associated Press announced Tuesday that Christofferson and Poppens were named to the honorable mention All-American team for their efforts this past season.

Christofferson, a unanimous first team All-Big 12 selection this season, was named an All-American honorable mention, her first All-America honors. The ISU junior averaged 15.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. She led the Cyclones in shooting percentage from the field (51.6), 3-point percentage (40.1) and free throw percentage (86.2).

Poppens, now a two-time All-American honorable mention, nearly averaged a double-double with 13.4 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. In her final season, she became just the 14th Big 12 women’s basketball player in history to score 1,000 points and grab 1,000 rebounds in her career.
