SANTA BARBARA, Calif— Senior center Ila Lane of the UCSB women's basketball team has another accolade to add to her already extensive resume. In addition to making The Big West Preseason Coaches' Team and being named to the Lisa Leslie Award Watch List, Lane has now been named one of the Top-Ten centers in Women's College Hoops by Flohoops.
Lane is currently averaging a double-double this season with 14.7 points per game and 11.3 rebounds, which both pace the team by a fair margin three games into the season. She is also shooting 64.3% from the field and has been a key factor in the team's best start since 1999.
She posted double-doubles in all three contests and swooped up the first Big West Player of the Week award after tallying 17 points and 11 rebounds on the road at Santa Clara, and another 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting in their home opener against Pepperdine to go with 10 boards.
