Wilkowski named MIAC Player-of-the-Year

On Tuesday of last week, Wilkowski was named a finalist for the prestigious Jostens Trophy for the second year in a row.  Today, she earned the top honor in the conference, completing a Hamline University basketball player-of-the-year sweep after Carl Hipp (Sr., Little Canada, Minn.) won the title for the men.

Wilkowski will graduate as the school's all-time leading scorer with 1,658 career points. She is second all-time in blocked shots with 90 and is fourth all-time in rebounding with 785.

She averaged 16.3 ppg and 7.7 rpg in her four years.

This season Wilkowski led the MIAC in scoring (21.2 ppg) was second in conference rebounding (9.2 rpg). Overall she averaged 21.3 ppg and 8.9 rpg, her highest totals of her career.

As part of a conference-wide sportsmanship initiative, the MIAC also announced the fifth annual All-MIAC Sportsmanship team for women's basketball. Members of the All-MIAC Sportsmanship team are selected by their coaches and teammates as individuals who demonstrate ideals of positive sportsmanship both on and off the field of competition.

Wilkowski is also Hamline's representative to the All-MIAC Sportsmanship team.
