WSU’s Galdeira receives Pac-12 honors


Washington State guard Lia Galdeira earned three honors Tuesday as the Pac-12 Conference announced its all-conference teams.

Galdeira was named to the Pac-12’s all-freshman team and received honorable mention on the All-Pac-12 team and the all-defensive team.

WSU sophomore guard Tia Presley (Gonzaga Prep), whose season ended in late January with a knee injury, joined Galdeira as All-Pac-12 honorable mention.

Oregon State’s Jamie Weisner (Clarkston High) was also named honorable mention and joined Galdeira on the all-freshman team.

Stanford junior forward Chiney Ogwumike was named player of the year and defensive player of the year.

Eighth-seeded Washington State (10-19) opens the Pac-12 Conference tournament in Seattle at 6 p.m. Thursday against No. 9 Arizona State (13-17).
