Two Seawolves and one Nanook picked up all-West Region women's basketball honors Tuesday.

UAA's Autummn Williams and Kiki Robertson and UAF's Jordan Wilson were among the 10 players selected to the all-West Region teams, picked by the Division II Conference Commissioners Association.

Williams made the first team, and Robertson and Wilson earned second-team honors.

Williams, a 5-10 senior from Rochester, New York, finished sixth in Division II in scoring with 21.3 points per game. She broke UAA's single season scoring record with 682 points, suprassing Megan Mullings' total of 635 in the 2015-16 season.

In her lone season at UAA after transferring from Division I Arkansas-Little Rock, Williams was a Great Northwest Athletic Conference first-team selection and the GNAC Newcomer of the Year. She also averaged 2.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 2.6 steals per game while shooting 50 percent from the floor, 37 percent from long range and 73 percent at the free-throw line.

Robertson's honor comes after an illustrious career that included GNAC career-records in assists (700), steals (382), games started (128) and victories (116). The 5-5 senior from Honolulu picked up GNAC Defensive Player of the Year honors last month.

Robertson was one of two players to rank in the nation's top 25 in steals (3.4 spg), assists (5.3 apg) and assist/turnover ratio (2.4) this season. She averaged 8.9 points per game.

Williams and Robertson propelled UAA to a 30-2 overall record — including a 20-0 GNAC mark — and No. 2 ranking this season before the Seawolves fell in the West Region semifinals.

Wilson, a 5-11 forward, averaged 21 points per game in her senior season with the Nanooks to rank seventh in the nation and fourth in the region.
