COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State sophomore forward Dorka Juhasz has been named a WBCA All-Region honoree, the organization announced on Wednesday. A total of 52 players were named across five regions and from that list, the WBCA will select its 10 All-America honorees. Those players will be announced on April 2.
Juhasz led the Buckeyes in scoring and rebounding for the second consecutive season, averaging 13.2 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. She had 10 double-doubles which was fourth in the Big Ten. Juhasz was also one of just three players 6-4 or taller nationally with 40 three-pointers made.
The Pecs, Hungary native became the 18th Buckeye to earn first team All-Big Ten honors this season. She earned second teams accolades last year and was named to the conference’s All-Freshmen Team. Juhasz had five 20+ point games this year and also grabbed a career-high tying 16 rebounds on five occasions.
In the Big Ten Tournament in early March, Juhasz helped lead the Buckeyes to three wins and an appearance in the championship game. She paced the team with 12.8 points and 11.5 rebounds per game, blocked nine shots and hit a career-high four three-pointers in the title game vs. No. 6 Maryland. For her effort, she was named to the Big Ten All-Tournament Team.
Juhasz and the Buckeyes finished the shortened season 21-12 and were fifth in the Big Ten at 11-7. The team had five wins over ranked opponents and owned the toughest strength of schedule in the country. By many accounts, the Buckeyes would have likely earned anywhere between a 5-7 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
