Former Kansas State All-Americans Shalee Lehning and Nicole Ohlde concluded action in the 2010 WNBA regular season during the weekend.
Lehning helped the Atlanta Dream to their second straight WNBA playoff appearance, while Ohlde endured a mid-season trade to the Tulsa Shock.
Kansas State's Ashley Sweat garnered her second All-American honor this season, as she was named to the first team of the Lowe's All-Senior All-America team on April 3.
Sweat also earned CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America third-team honors earlier this season.
Sweat is the fourth K-State student-athlete to earn All-America honors from the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award committee (Nicole Ohlde, Kendra Wecker and Shalee Lehning).
We don't talk about women's basketball much around here — and probably will even less in 2010, because they're enduring a difficult rebuilding season even as the men experience a breakthrough season — but this accomplishment deserves recognition.
I can't think of a better lady to teach future players than the best damned point guard of any gender ever to play in the state of Kansas. Good hire, Deb.
In a move reminiscent of DarrenSproles43.com, the K-State athletic department is trying to create a little pub for Shalee Lehning.
Here's hoping #5 (and the rest of the women's b-ball team) has a great year.
