Hawaii sophomore forward Kamilah Jackson was named to the Western Athletic Conference women's basketball second team in postseason awards announced today. She was one of three Rainbow Wahine players to receive honors.
Senior forward Breanna Arbuckle was named to the all-defensive team and point guard Alissa Campanero made the all-freshman team.
