IUWBB: Cahill, Buss, Gassion make All-Big Ten squads

Indiana’s “big three” received All-Big Ten honors on Monday. 

Junior point guard Tyra Buss repeated as a first-team All-Big Ten selection and junior Amanda Cahill was a second-teamer, by both the media and the coaches. Senior forward Alexis Gassion made the conference’s all-defensive team.

Buss is the first Hoosier to be named first-team All-Big Ten in back-to-back years since Jill Chapman in 2001-02.  She leads the Hoosiers with 18.6 points and 4.9 assists per game. She has the most points through a junior season in program history, at 1,522, and set an IU record for consecutive double-figures scoring games at 59.

Cahill was named second-team All-Big Ten last year by the media, but was an honorable mention selection by the conference’s coaches. This year, both voting blocks awarded her second-team status. Cahill averages 15.0 points and 9.2 rebounds per game this season.

Gassion, who is always tasked with guarding the other team’s best player, made the all-defensive team. She is the second player in program history to receive this honor; the only other was Kim Robinson Roberson in 2008 and 2009. Gassion, who averages 12.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game, was also named honorable mention All-Big Ten.

  1. Very Good things are going on in the IU ladies program. Take care of T. Moren and staff. One of the best hires Glass has made.

  2. Like Kim Roberson (not Kim “Robinson”) we won’t understand just how valuable Gassion is to this team until she’s gone.

  3. Roberson FIXED!
    Thanks Jon. Your article in the printed HT on the Iowa game captured PERFECTLY the look and feel of the game. I got to be there twice.
