Marquette women’s basketball senior guard Natisha Hiedeman earned 2018-’19 Women’s AP All-America Honorable Mention honors Monday.

This is the second time in program history a Marquette player has been selected to an AP All-American team. Krystal Ellis is the only other player to do so. She received the award in 2007.

Hiedeman won BIG EAST Player of the Year and was a unanimous selection to the All-BIG EAST First Team and BIG EAST All-Tournament Team this past season. 

Hiedeman broke several program records this year and had the most points scored by a senior with 617. She also had the most 3-pointers made by a senior with 93, and she is MU’s all-time leader in 3-pointers made in her career with 301.

Her career high in points was set this season against Seton Hall Feb. 17 with 34.

Although known for her offensive abilities, Hiedeman led the team this season in defensive rebounds with 214. She also led the team in steals, assists and blocks.

Her 1,913 points scored during her career at Marquette is the third highest in program history behind Ellis and teammate Allazia Blockton.
