SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara women's basketball seniors Chandice Cronk and Jen Gottschalk received All-West Coast Conference accolades for their performance this season, it was announced Monday. Cronk received her third all-league honor, while Gottschalk earned her second honor from the WCC.
Cronk averaged a team-best 17.1 points per game in her senior season and led the Broncos with a .406 three-point field goal percentage. She also was 44.4 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from the foul line. In conference games only, Cronk averaged a team-best 16.4 points per game, while shooting 40.7 percent from the field and a team-best 93.1 percent from the foul line. She posted a career-high 10 field goals in the Broncos first meeting against Portland this year. Despite missing the second half of league play, Cronk remained ranked fourth overall in the WCC in scoring and second in three-point field goals made through the final week of the regular season. She was also named one of the WCC's players of the week in late January after helping Santa Clara to a 2-0 week against USF and San Diego.
Santa Clara finished the regular-season in second place in the WCC standings and earned a No. 2 seed to the conference tournament, which will be held on March 6-9 at the Jenny Craig Pavilion on the campus of the University of San Diego. The Broncos will face the Dons of San Francisco in the first round with a Noon tip off on Thursday.
