BOISE, Idaho (Feb. 11, 2016) - Boise State’s Miquelle Askew and Brooke Pahukoa have been named to the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District™ 7 Women’s Basketball Team as announced this morning. This is the first time that either Askew or Pahukoa has been recognized for the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team. They are the only women’s basketball student-athletes from the Mountain West to be honored this year and the first Broncos since Tasha Harris and Jessica Thompson made all-district in 2010.

The CoSIDA Academic All-District™ Teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. First-team Academic All-District™ honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.

Athletically, she became the 17th Bronco in history to record 1,000 or more careers points with 1,197, the 20th to reach 500 rebounds with 554 and the 11th to make the 1,000 points/500 rebounds club.

Pahukoa is a two-year starter at guard for Boise State and is majoring in elementary education. The junior has been a success in the classroom over her first three years having twice been named to the Academic All-Mountain West Team and Mountain West Scholar Athlete for maintaining a cumulative GPA above 3.5.
