Ayoka Lee shoots vs. OU_KSU_WBB_013121_013.JPG

Kansas State’s Ayoka Lee (50) goes up for a shot during the team’s game against Oklahoma at Bramlage Coliseum on Jan. 31. Lee earned honorable mention All-America honors last week. 

Kansas State sophomore center Ayoka Lee was named an honorable mention on the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association All-America team last week.

Lee, a sophomore, averaged 19.1 points and 8.7 rebounds in 29 games. She also averaged two blocks, which made her the first Wildcat to register 450 points, 200 rebounds and 45 blocks in a single season.

Lee also is the Wildcats’ first All-America honoree during the Jeff Mittie era, which dates back to 2014. She was the only player in Division I to shoot 60% from the field (she shot 62.1%) and 80% from the free throw line (she shot 81.2%). Both marked career highs.

Lee and 11 other Wildcats are expected to return next season, when they hope to improve on their 9-18 record in 2020-21.
