Nebraska junior Hannah Whitish earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors Monday while Iowa senior Megan Gustafson was named the conference player of the year.

Whitish leads the Huskers with 10.1 points and 4.3 assists this season and is fifth in the conference in 3-point shooting percentage (.363). She made the All-Big Ten second team last season.

Gustafson closed her regular-season career with 34 points and 12 rebounds against Northwestern.
