BEAVERTON, Ore. – Fort Hays State women’s basketball senior Tatyana Legette picked up a second All-America honor this week, earning a spot on the third team of the 2019 Women’s Division II Bulletin All-American list. Legette is the fourth All-America selection in the program’s history and first since Kate Lehman in 2015. Legette adds this honor to her great list of accomplishments this year after being named WBCA All-America Honorable Mention, MIAA Player of the Year, MIAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player and a D2CCA All-Region First Team selection.

Legette led Fort Hays State in points, rebounds, and assists, helping the Tigers to a stellar 32-2 overall record and advance to the NCAA Central Regional Final. She averaged 13.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game, while ranking second on the team in blocks per game (1.5) and third in steals per game (1.4). She scored in double figures 24 times, compiling 10 double-doubles in the process. Legette was named MIAA Athlete of the Week three times this year.

For her career, the Topeka, Kan. native has amassed 1,256 points, ranking 11th on the all-time list at FHSU, and 865 rebounds, good for fourth in program history. She ranks fifth in program history for blocked shots (126) and free throws made (352), sixth in free-throw attempts (487), and 10th in field goal percentage (50.3 percent).

Legette helped lead the Tigers to a 30-1 record entering the NCAA Championship Tournament, the fewest losses in the regular season in program history. She helped FHSU capture both the MIAA regular season and MIAA tournament championships, becoming the first team to do so since 2012. The Tigers earned an automatic bid into the 2019 NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Championship, their fifth trip to the big dance. The Tigers were the No. 1 seed in the Central Regional of the tournament.
