TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State’s Brooke Wyckoff will continue to play with the nation’s top collegiate women’s basketball players as the senior is headed to St. Louis, Mo., this weekend to participate in the Women’s Basketball Association (WBCA) All-Star Challenge as a part of the Final Four activities. The game, which will be played at the WU Field House on the campus of Washington University, is set for Saturday, March 31 at 4:00 p.m.
Wyckoff, a 2001 first team All-ACC selection and a two-time member of the league’s All Defensive Team, helped the Seminoles to their best season in a decade. Florida State finished 19-12 on the year and made its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since the 1990-91 season. The Seminoles topped Tulane 72-70 in first round action, but fell 85-70 to host Iowa State in the second round.
Wyckoff finished her Seminole career ranking eighth in scoring (1,350 points), fifth in all-time rebounds (804) and steals (189), seventh in rebounds per game (7.4) and is FSU’s all-time blocks leader with 209 blocked shots. She spent the past three summers with USA Basketball and was a starter for both the Jones Cup and World University Games teams and was also a captain for the 2000 Jones Cup Team.
The West Chester, Ohio, native, who is a three-time ACC All Academic selection and a winner of the ACC postgraduate scholarship, garnered Women’s Basketball News Service Second Team All-American honors. She started all 31 games at the wing position this season and ranked among the ACC’s top nine in six statistical categories.
