SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Rachel Banham; Senior, Guard, Minnesota

No surprise here; Banham scored 22.1 points per game in 2013-14, to go along with 3.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds. She was fourth in the conference in three-point percentage at 42.1 percent and was selected by the Big Ten coaches as Preseason Big Ten Player of the Year. She will be Minnesota’s leader and is positioned to have another great season.

Sam Logic; Senior, Guard, Iowa

Again, no surprise with this one. Logic has had a historic career for the Hawkeyes, and will challenge scoring, rebounds, and steals records, as well as the Big Ten’s career assist record. She will operate one of the top offenses in the conference and could finish as one of the best point guards in recent memory.

Rachel Theriot; Junior, Guard, Nebraska

Theriot trailed only Logic in assists last season, distributing 7.1 per game for the Cornhuskers. The guard also scored 14.1 points and corralled 3.4 rebounds per game and posted outstanding shooting numbers; 48% from the floor and 43% from beyond the arc.

Nia Coffey; Sophomore, Forward, Northwestern

Coffey came on strong in her freshman season for the Wildcats, scoring 15.3 points and collecting 8.1 rebounds per game; ninth and sixth in conference, respectively. She was also sixth with 1.8 blocks per game, and 12th with 1.7 steals per game. Coffey will quickly solidify her position among the best frontcourt players in the conference.

Amanda Zahui; Sophomore, Center, Minnesota

Zahui also finds herself on this list after an impressive freshman campaign in the frontcourt. The Gophers get their second selection, as Zahui scored 15.1 points per game (11th in the conference), and hoarded a stunning 11.6 rebounds per game, which led the conference. Unsurprisingly, Zahui also led the league with 3.1 blocks, and as such, enters 2014 as one of the most feared post players.
