A whirlwind, four-day search to replace Kevin McGuff ends where it began - with the top assistant on McGuff's Staff. The 44-year-old Neighbors gets a five-year contract starting at $350,000 per season as a first-time head coach.
In addition to Kristi Kingma earning first team honors, Mercedes Wetmore and Aminah Williams earned honorable mention.
Washington begins what it hopes will be a deep run in the WNIT by hosting Eastern Washington on Friday at 7 p.m.
Jazmine Davis scores 28 points, Talia Walton adds 19 with nine rebounds and the key 3-pointer late, and the Huskies use a school-record rally to advance to the second round of the Pac-12 tournament vs. Colorado Friday.
The fifth-seeded Huskies' best chances to beat 12th-seeded Oregon Thursday night and then perhaps fourth-seeded Colorado Friday at KeyArena lie not necessarily with their scorer but with who sets them up.
