HOUSTON, Texas – Rice senior forward Jessica Kuster was selected an Associated Press All-American Honorable Mention on Tuesday, becoming the first player in school history to earn AP All-American accolades.
Kuster, a native of San Antonio, Texas, had a season for the ages by leading the Owls in scoring (20.9) and rebounding (13.3), both career highs, and was named to both the C-USA First-Team and All-Defensive Team for a league record fourth straight season.
Kuster currently ranks fourth in the nation this season with 26 double-doubles. She finished her career with 67 double-doubles, the most in C-USA history.
Kuster set the Rice basketball all-time scoring record (men’s or women’s) with 2,081 career points, as well as the women’s all-time rebounding mark (1,376), becoming just the 145th player in NCAA Division I history to amass over 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds.
