BYU women’s basketball players Kim Parker Beeston and Jennifer Hamson were named to the 2012-13 West Coast Conference Women’s Basketball All-Academic Team. This is the second consecutive honor for both Cougar student-athletes.

At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to his or her team.

Teammates Xojian Harry, Ashley Garfield and Haley Steed were named Honorable Mention.
