Three Colorado women’s basketball players have earned Pac-12 postseason honors.
The postseason awards, voted on by Pac-12 coaches, were announced Tuesday, with CU’s Alexis Robinson, Quinessa Caylao-Do and Peanut Tuitele being recognized.
Robinson earned honorable mention for the All-Pac-12 team. The senior averaged 12.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in the regular season. It’s the second postseason honor for Robinson, who also earned honorable mention after the 2016-17 season.
Caylao-Do received honorable mention for the all-defensive team. She has had 31 steals and 11 blocks this season. In addition to elevating her game offensively (career-high 11.1 points per game), Caylao-Do is counted on as a top perimeter defender for the Buffs.
Tuitele has had an injury-plagued season, but still earned honorable mention for the all-freshman team. She has averaged 7.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game this season.
