Lindsey Duvall - Northern Kentucky - Senior - Guard

Mary Dunn - Youngstown State - Senior - Forward

Mary Dunn used her 6-3 frame to power her way to the second best field goal percentage in the Horizon League. She shot 52.1 percent to go along with a scoring average of 15.6, which was seventh in the conference.

All-Defense

Mariah White - Cleveland State - Senior - Guard

Megan Walstad - Milwaukee - Junior - Forward

Caitlyn Hibner - Green Bay - Senior - Guard

Macee Williams - IUPUI - Senior - Forward/Center

Destiny Perkins - IUPUI - Senior - Guard

Perkins was tied for second in the conference with an average of 2.1 steals per game for the Horizon League regular season champs. She recorded at least one steal in each game this season.

Defensive Player of the Year - Megan Walstad, Milwaukee

Freshman of the Year - Nneka Obiazor, Youngstown State

Coach of the Year - John Barnes - Youngstown State

Last season was a rough one for Youngstown State as it finished 13-17. This year the Penguins improved to 9-7 and had the opportunity to be a lot better had it not been for a few fourth quarter meltdowns. Coach Barnes has his team on the upward trend and we wouldn't be surprised to see the battle tested YSU make a run to the Horizon League finals this year. With a nice amount of talent returning next season we're predicting that this is an 18-to-20 win team in the 2021-22 season and Coach Barnes is the right guy to get this group to the top.
