Borislava Hristova named to All-Pac-12 team

The redshirt sophomore was one of the bright spots for the Cougar Women in a tough 2017-18 season.

The Pac-12 women’s tournament tips off on Thursday in Seattle. But before the Cougars head west over the mountains, one of Washington State’s best was honored with yet another all-conference honor.

On Tuesday, the Pac-12 announced their women’s basketball all-conference honors. Unlike other conferences who do first, second and third team lists, the “Conference of Champions” does just one 15 person list, and Washington State’s Borislava Hristova was the lone Cougar on the list.

Looking at the stats, it’s clear why the Bulgaria native made the cut. In the regular season, Hristova scored 18.1 points per game overall and more than 19 PPG in conference play despite being hampered by an ankle injury shortly before Pac-12 play began. Her best game came in a win over Colorado where she posted 36 points (2nd most in the Pac-12 this season) on 15-21 from the floor (program record for made field goals).

It’s the 2nd straight season earning a conference honor for the redshirt sophomore. In the 2015-16 season, the true freshman earned a spot on the honorable mention All-Pac-12 list as well as the all-freshman team.

Check out the full release on Hristova’s honors on WSU’s website here.

Hristova will now lead the 10th seeded Cougs to the Emerald City to start Pac-12 Tournament play in the Key Arena. Tip off set for 6 o’clock on the Pac-12 Network. A full women’s bracket can be found here.
