Iowa’s Gustafson is AP women’s player of the Year

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Megan Gustafson of Iowa is The Associated Press women’s college basketball player of the year.

She led the nation in scoring for the second consecutive year and is the first player from the school and the Big Ten to win the award.

The 6-foot-3 star received 15 votes Thursday from the 28-member national media panel that selects the weekly AP rankings. Balloting was done before the NCAA Tournament.

Gustafson averaged 27.9 points and helped the Hawkeyes reach the Elite Eight for the first time since 1993.

She became only the fourth Division I player to score more than 1,000 points in a season.

Gustafson tied the NCAA record for double-doubles in a season with 33. She set an NCAA record this season with 412 field goals.
