After a stellar regular season, senior Ashley Morrissette has been named by both coaches and media to the All-Big Ten First Team, in addition to being named to the Big Ten All-Defensive Team. She is the first Purdue player since Courtney Moses in 2013-14 and the 17th Purdue player overall to receive first team honors. Morrissette was pressed into duty as the starting point guard after Tiara Murphy went down with an ACL injury early in the season. Morrissette will lead the team in points, assists, and steals, finishing the regular season with averages of 16.0 points, 4.6 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game. She also had two 30+ point games this season, a feat accomplished by 10 others in Purdue history, and had two games with 5 steals and two games with 6 steals this season.

Dominique McBryde finished the regular season averaging 7.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per game, with in conference averages of 8.5 points and 6.8 rebounds. She also converted on 53.8 percent of her shots from the field for the season.

Congratulations to these three players for receiving All-Big Ten awards.
