ATLANTA, Ga. -- For the second straight season, University of Michigan women's basketball junior Katelynn Flaherty earned WBCA All-America honorable mention after averaging 20.2 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
Flaherty is the first Wolverine in school history to earn national recognition twice. She reached the 20-point plateau 20 times, while putting together three 30-point games. Flaherty scored a career-high 38 points at Ohio State (Jan. 7), hitting a program-record eight triples in the contest. The junior scored 746 points on the season, second to her own school-record 774 points she put in as a sophomore. She ended with 109 three-pointers, one away from Kate Thompson's record of 110.
Flaherty was a consensus All-Big Ten first teamer, earning a unanimous selection by the coaches. She was named the MVP of the WNIT and to the Paradise Jam all-tournament team earlier this season.
For her career, Flaherty became the second Wolverine in program history to reach 2,000 points following her 27-point outing against Georgia Tech in the WNIT championship game (April 1). Flaherty's 2,019 points are second to program leader Diane Dietz (2,076), while she already is the career leader in three-pointers made (292).
Michigan finished the 2016-17 campaign as WNIT champions following an 89-79 triple-overtime win over Georgia Tech. U-M set new program records for wins (28), points (2,846), home wins (19), winning percentage (.756), three-pointers made (279) and rebounds (1,403).
