The accolades keep pilling up for Lindsey Pulliam.
For the first time in her career, Northwestern’s star guard was selected to the Associated Press’ All-American roster released Thursday afternoon. She was one of 20 athletes to earn honorable mention honors and joins an elite list of some of the top collegiate athletes in the nation.
The Maryland native finished her junior season averaging 18.8 points (563 total), 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. She ranked third in the Big Ten in scoring average and posted 14 games with over 20 points. Ultimately, Pulliam carried her team to finish 11th in the nation with a 26-4 record, its best final ranking and record in program history.
In addition to All-American, for the second consecutive season, she was unanimously selected to the All-Big Ten first team by both the coaches and media.
Pulliam is the first Wildcat to receive this honor since Nia Coffey in 2016 and 2017. Coffey went on to be drafted fifth overall in the WNBA, so the future is clearly bright for Pulliam as well.
Three other Big Ten players earned All-American honors alongside Pulliam. Iowa’s Kathleen Doyle and Maryland’s Kaila Charles were both selected to the third team, and Rutgers’ Arella Guirantes joined Pulliam as honorable mention.
Despite the abrupt and heart-breaking end to her junior year, Pulliam is far from done. She will continue to make her impact on Northwestern, the Big Ten and the nation in her senior season.
