MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- Kansas State women's basketball coach Jeff Mittie announced on Thursday the dismissal of sophomore forward Eternati Willock from the team.

“Eternati struggled with many things associated with being a student-athlete,” Mittie said in a release. “While there were glimpses of improvement in her behavior, overall her continued violations of team rules and standards has led to her dismissal. We wish her the best going forward.”

Willock was a unanimous selection for the 2017 All-Big 12 Freshman Team.

Willock played in 31 games in her one season in Manhattan. She averaged 6.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.
