MSU women's basketball's Tori Jankoska added to Wade Watch List
The accolades keep on adding for senior guard Tori Jankoska, as Jankoska was one of 10 players added to the Wade Watch List on Monday afternoon by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, or WBCA, according to a press release. The Freeland, Mich. native is one of seven Big Ten players on the Wade Watch List.
The Wade award is the highest award a player can win in women's college basketball, and is awarded to the top player in the nation. The list will be shortened to four finalists in March, with the winner announced at the WBCA Convention during the NCAA Women's Final Four, which will take place in Dallas.
Jankoska is the second leading scorer in the Big Ten with 21.6 points per game and is ranked No. 8 in rebounding at 8.2 rebounds per game. The senior is also No. 5 in assists at 5.2 a game. From the free-throw line, Jankoska leads the Big Ten, shooting 90.2 percent from the charity stripe.
Jankoska became the all-time career scorer in MSU women's basketball history, passing former teammate Aerial Powers in a 94-75 against Ohio State University on Jan. 10. She also broke the single-game scoring record against the Buckeyes, scoring 42 points.
The Spartans next play the Iowa Hawkeyes in Iowa City on Feb. 9, with tipoff scheduled for 7 p.m.
