Zahui B. is just the fourth player in Golden Gophers history to win this award. She’s the first since Lindsay Whalen in 2002.
Zahui B. stepped up big this season following the loss of Preseason Big Ten Player of the Year Rachel Banham. This season, she averaged 18.5 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 4.0 blocks per game.
She’s just 23 rebounds away from breaking her own record that she set last season. She had 394 boards last season, which is a Big Ten and Minnesota single-season record.
Against Top 25 teams, she stepped her game up even more, as she’s averaging 25.8 points, 16.8 rebounds, 4.3 blocks, and 2 steals per contest.
