Washington State freshman Chanelle Molin and junior Caila Hailey earned all-Pac 12 honorable mentions, the conference announced Tuesday.

Molina earned an honorable mention to the All-Freshman Team while Hailey earned her second straight honorable mention to the All-Defensive Team.

Despite playing just six conference games before suffering a season-ending injury, Molina made her mark. A two-time Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, Molina was averaging 12.8 points on 51.5 percent shooting.

Hailey finished the regular season with a team-best 55 steals, averaging 1.9 to rank seventh in the Pac-12. Led by Hailey, the Cougs finished the regular season ranked No. 36 in the nation in forcing turnovers at 19.4 per game.

The No. 7-seeded Cougars (11-18) will face No. 10 seed Colorado (15-14) in the Pac-12 Tournament on Thursday at KeyArena in Seattle.
