Cal U junior point guard Miki Glenn’s accolade list just got a whole lot bigger this past week.
Glenn was selected to Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-America Team on Monday night at the Elite Eight banquet ceremony in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
She was just one of only 10 Divison II players in the country to earn the honor, as voted on by the WBCA All-America selection committee.
This honor comes exactly a week after being named to the Conference Commissioner’s Association (CCA) First-Team All-Region.
Glenn was a WBCA All-America honorable mention selection in the Vulcans National Championship season a year ago. The Bridgeport, West Virginia native became the first Vulcan to earn WBCA All-America honors since Kayla Smith in 2011.
There is really nothing that Miki Glenn has not done in her three-year career at Cal. She leaped right onto the PSAC stage in her freshman year by earning PSAC West Freshman of the Year honors. She followed up by having one of the most accomplished sophomore years that any player can really have.
Glenn helped the Vulcans win their first PSAC championship since 2006 last season, first Atlantic Region championship since 2009, and of course the school’s second National Championship. The aspect that set Glenn apart from the rest is that she made her mark in every postseason round.
In the PSAC championships, she won tournament MVP while compiling a then career-high 30 points at the time. Then followed up winning the NCAA Atlantic Region MVP and also earned NCAA National Championships all-tournament team honors. She put together her finest performance in the National Championship game with a new postseason career-high 31 points.
Glenn’s toughest challenge to date came this past season. Glenn was the lone returning starter from the National Championship team and had to lead four new in trying to keep the Vulcans at the top.
She did just that and more by leading the PSAC in scoring at 19.3 and finishing in the top 10 nationally in steals and assists. Glenn was the catalyst of a 14 game winning streak that led the Vulcans to their second-straight PSAC title and second round NCAA regional appearance.
One can say she gained more accolades in her junior season. Before getting these past two awards, she was named PSAC West player of the year and again PSAC Tournament MVP. Glenn even set a new career-high in points scored in a single game with 36 against Mercyhurst in January. When the Vulcans needed Glenn the most this season, she delivered.
Glenn enters her final season in the Fall poised to add some more accolades and even break some more school records. After breaking the Vulcans all-time career free throw record, she sits in the top 10 at Cal in assists and steals, but the number that will be tracked the most are her career points. Glenn right now has 1,460 career points which is 10th all-time in Vulcans history.
With one more fantastic season, Glenn could put herself in the conversation for one of the greatest California Vulcans women’s basketball players of all-time.
