Rhea averaged 15.8 points through the regular season, and ranked in the top 10 in the league in scoring for all of 2009-10. She ended the regular season sixth, just two-tenths of a point behind the fifth-ranked player.

Rhea also totaled a team-leading 2.7 assists per game, which ranks 11th in the league entering the Pac-10 Tournament, which starts Thursday night at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

Other categories in which she ranked among the Pac-10's leaders include free-throw percentage (.782), in which she ranked 11th, and 3-pointers made (41), for which she finished in a tie for 10th.

Rhea continued her march toward becoming one of the most productive scoring threats in school history. She currently has made 172 three-pointers, which is six off tying for the most in school history. She also has 1,200 career points, good for eighth in Oregon Statehistory.

A panel of Pac-10 women's basketball media members who cover the league voted on the awards. It is the first time the media has voted for a postseason Pac-10 squad. Fifteen players were selected to the All-Pac-10 team.

On Wednesday, the Pac-10 will release its All-Conference squad as voted upon by the league's coaches.

Rhea and Oregon State play in the first round of the Pacific-10 Conference Tournament Thursday against No. 7 seed Washington. Tip from the Galen Center in Los Angeles is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. PT
