Doyle Named USBWA Third Team All-American

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa women’s basketball senior Kathleen Doyle has been named an USBWA Third Team All-American, the United States Basketball Writers Association announced Monday.

Doyle is one of 16 student-athletes chosen to the first, second, and third teams. The 33rd annual All-America team features six players on the third team due to a tie in voting.

Doyle is the fifth Hawkeye in program history to earn USBWA All-America honors. Preceding her, Megan Gustafson (2018, 2019), Sam Logic (2015), Necole Tunsil (1994), and Michelle Edwards (1988) were also named USBWA All-Americans.

The LaGrange Park, Illinois, native finished the season ranking in the top-50 nationally in five statistical categories, including sixth in the nation in total assists (189), seventh in assists per game (6.3), 19th in free throws made (147), 37th in total points (544), and 49th in points per game (18.1).

The USBWA is the second major outlet to name Doyle as a third team All-American. The Associated Press tabbed Doyle an All-American on March 19.
