Stohr earns second-team All-America honors
Lewis-Clark State College junior guard/forward Jasmine Stohr continues to pile up postseason honors as the NAIA has named the Yakima, Wash., product to its Division I Women’s Basketball All-America second team, the NAIA All-America committee announced this week.
Stohr, 6-foot, received the 11th highest point total in the voting and barely missed the 10-member first team.
It’s the fifth honor Stohr has earned since the conclusion of the regular season. On the court, she’s been named co-Player of the Year for the Frontier Conference where she was a first-team all-conference pick for the third straight season. She also earned first-team WBCA All-America honors. In the classroom she was both a Daktronics Scholar-Athlete and a Frontier Conference all-academic selection for maintaining a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and be at least a junior in academic standing.
During the season she earned the conference’s Player of the Week award twice, the second year in a row that she’s accomplished that feat, and also was named MVP of both the Twin Rivers Physical Therapy Classic and the Warrior Invitational.
Stohr was the only Frontier Conference play to be named to the first, second or third team by the NAIA.
“We are extremely proud of Jasmine’s honors, both on the court and in the classroom,” LCSC coach Brian Orr said. “Her work ethic, year-round commitment, and her desire to continue to improve as a player are why she is so deserving of every accolade.”
Stohr had a phenomenal season and averaged 18.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 2.6 steals per game. She helped the Warriors win their fourth straight FC Tournament title and the team reach the Sweet 16 of the NAIA National Tournament. LCSC finished with a 29-5 record, which ties for the fourth most wins in a season, and along the way, the team defeated eventual national champion Azusa Pacific 72-62 in a tournament in California in December.
Despite facing a number of gimmick defenses, including box-and-1s, in an attempt by opponents to slow her down, Stohr had an outstanding season. She led the conference in scoring and steals and finished ninth in the NAIA in total points (614) and 15th in points per game. She also was 15th in total steals (98) and 27thin steals per game. She also ranked No. 41 in total assists (121) and was 44th in field goal percentage at 45.8 percent.
Stohr finished in double figures scoring in all but two games this season, including the first 28 contests. She posted two double-doubles during the season with 13 points and 10 assists against Holy Names College and 18 points and 10 rebounds against Montana State University-Northern. She also had season highs of four blocks, six steals and 30 points.
Stohr’s season has her listed in numerous spots in the LCSC record book. Her point total is third-best in single-season history behind Julie Stringer (894) and Rosie Albert (619) and her career total of 1,562 points has her fifth all-time and just five points out of fourth place.
She made 213 field goals during the season, which is ninth on the single-season list and her 561 career total field goals is fifth on the school list.
Stohr set the single-season mark for free throws made and attempted during a season as she went 155-of-205 for 75.6 percent. She’s made 335 free throws in her three years, which is fifth on the all-time list and her 449 attempts ranks seventh.
She had 89 steals this season, which ties her for eighth on the single-season list and her 121 assists ties her for 21st. She has 212 career steals, which is 10th on the all-time list, and 262 assists, which ranks her 12th.
Stohr is the sixth player in program history to earn first-team All-America honors from an organization. Stringer and Albert both were first-team selections twice during their careers, while Amanda Campbell, Brianne Jolley, and Brianne Kottwitz all were honored once.
