Lindy’s Tabs Goodrich as Preseason All-America
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas senior Angel Goodrich was one of 15 student-athletes nationally to be named on the annual Lindy’s Preseason All-America team, as she received third-team honors entering the 2012-13 women’s basketball season.
Goodrich was one of four student-athletes from the Big 12 Conference to be recognized, including Baylor’s Brittney Griner (first team), Odyssey Sims (first team) and Destiny Williams (third team).
Goodrich led the nation last season in assists per game (7.4) and paced KU with 14.0 points per game as she guided the Jayhawks to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16, their best postseason run since 1998. Goodrich was named All-America Honorable Mention by both the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association and Associated Press. She also broke a Kansas and Big 12 Conference record, tallying 250 assists on the season.
Goodrich and the Kansas Jayhawks open the season on Sunday, October 28. Season tickets are still on sale and can be purchased at KUAthletics.com, or by calling the ticket office at 800-34-HAWKS.
