WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Oregon State junior guard Talisa Rhea, a Juneau-Douglas High School alum, has been named to the All-Pacific-10 Conference Team in a vote by the league's media, the conference announced Tuesday.
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.
