Chambers named WBCA All-Region

By The Mercury

Kansas State’s Brittany Chambers garnered another national honor on Tuesday, as she was named to the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-Region 5 team and is a finalist for All-America honors from the WBCA.

Chambers is one of 52 finalists and is one of seven from the Big 12.

The State Farm Coaches’ All-America Team will be announced at the State Farm Coaches’ All-America Team press conference on April 6.

Chambers is the 10th player in school history to earn WBCA All-District honor and the first since Shalee Lehning in the 2009 season.

For the season, Chambers has registered career season-highs in three major statistical categories and is the only player in the Big 12 to score 600 or more points (648; 20.3 ppg), grab 200 or more rebounds (241; 7.5 rpg) and dish out 90 or more assists (98; 3.1 apg).

Chambers, a three-time First-Team All-Big 12 selection, is the fourth player to reach this milestone in league history. She joins former Wildcat Nicole Ohlde as the only player in school history to achieve these numbers in a single season.

The 648 points are a career-high for Chambers and ranks as a school record for points by a senior and is the second-highest overall point total for a single-season in program history (Tammie Romstad, 686; 1979-80).

Chambers scored in double figures in 30 of the 32 games this season, including a career-high 18 games of 20 or more points. The 18 games with 20 or more points are the most by a Wildcat in the Deb Patterson era.

In league action, Chambers averaged 20.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists. She ranked second in the league in scoring, 10th in rebounding, 11th in assists and paced the league in minutes played per game. She scored in double figures in 17 of the 18 league contests and scored 20 or more points in 10 league games.

For her career, Chambers is one of just four players at Big 12 schools to register 2,000 career points, 800 career rebounds and 325 career assists. Chambers became the third player in school history to record 2,000 career points (2,026).

Chambers ranks among K-State’s Top 10 in 11 career categories including: points, rebounds (822, fifth), assists (339, ninth), 3-pointers made (327, second), 3-pointers attempted (927, second), field goals made (706, fourth), field goals attempted (1,750, third), free throws made (287, ninth), minutes played (4,543, first), games played (130, tied for fifth) and games started (125, third).
