Hellmann Named to All-UAA Second Team


Case Western Reserve University junior forward Hillary Hellmann was named to the All-University Athletic Association Second Team for her play during the 2017-18 campaign, as announced by the league on Wednesday afternoon.

It marked the second All-UAA honor of Hellmann's career, after she was named to the all-conference second team as a sophomore as well.

Hellmann was the only Spartan player to start all 24 of the team's games during the season, and finished the year leading the squad with 16.1 points per game (third in the UAA) and a career-best 6.9 rebounds per contest (ninth in the UAA).  Averaging 29.0 minutes per game, she shot 37.4% overall during the year, including 35.4% from behind the three-point line, and led the Spartans with 28 steals and 18 blocks in 2017-18.  Hellmann paced the squad in scoring in 14 of its 24 games and in rebounding on 15 occasions.  Her 52 made three-pointers were the sixth-most in a single season in program history, while her 387 points during the campaign were the 11th-most ever by a Spartan player.  She notched five double-doubles during the year.

In addition, Hellmann became the 15th player in CWRU history to reach the 1,000-career point mark during the Spartans' game against Washington (Mo.) on January 19th, and ended her junior campaign with 1,156 career points, the eighth-most by a CWRU player.  She ranks third in program history with 171 made three point shots over her career, eight shy of the program's all-time record, and is 10th among all NCAA Division III players with a 40.3% career mark on three-point attempts, and 24th with 2.31 three pointers made per game.

The Spartans finished the 2017-18 season with a 4-20 overall record, including a 1-13 conference record.
