LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women's basketball ended the 2013 season ranked second in the final NCAA Division I statistics, released this week by the NCAA after the completion of the season with Tuesday's National Championship game.
The Aggies made 495-of-618 free throws this season and their 80.1 percent was also tops in the Western Athletic Conference. USU also had three of the top four free throw shooters in the conference led by senior guard Devyn Christensen who shot a league-leading 92.4 percent, which was also a WAC record. She finished the season third in the nation from the charity stripe. Christensen missed only nine of the 119 free throws she attempted this season. Junior guard Jennifer Schlott was third in the WAC, shooting 83.8 percent (134-of-169), while senior guard Jenna Johnson was fourth, shooting 82.6 percent (142-of-172).
Utah State also ended the year fifth in the nation in scoring offense (76.5 ppg) and ninth in steals (12.0 ppg). Individually, Christensen was also second in three-point field goals per game, making 3.34 threes a game. Christensen was also among the nation's leaders in scorers, standing 17th with 20.1 points per game. Johnson was also 19th in the nation and third in the conference in steals per game (3.00 spg).
USU's sharp-shooting from beyond the arc also placed it 17th in the country in three-point field goals made (7.7).
Freshman guard Makenlee Williams was first in the WAC in three-point field goal percentage, shooting 42.3 percent from beyond the arc, while sophomore forward Franny Vaaulu was second in the league in field goal percentage, shooting 55.3 percent.
