Becca Friestleben and Katie Wolff have been one of the best one-two shooting punches in the history of the Winona State University women’s basketball program.

The rest of the NSIC coaches took notice, too, as each earned a spot on the All-NSIC second team.

“Both Becca and Katie are more than deserving of this honor,” Winona State coach Scott Ballard said. “They would also be the first to tell you their teammates had a lot to do with it as well. Becca is one of the top scorers in the conference and set a conference single-season 3-point record. Katie was a second team all-conference player last year and had a better year this season.”

Friestleben leads the Warriors with a 15.9 points per game average, sixth-best in the conference, and has made a school-record 103 3-point shots, shooting 42.9 percent from behind the line. Friestleben also set a Winona State single-game record with nine made 3-pointers in a win over Bemidji State. She has made seven or more 3-pointers in a game four times this season.

Friestleben scored a career-high 31 points twice this season, reaching the mark against both Bemidji State and UW-Stout.

Wolff is averaging 11.5 points and 3.7 assists per game. Wolff has made 81 shots from behind the 3-point line, the third-most in school history, while shooting 41.1 percent. Her 3-point totals give her 235 on her career, the second-most of any player in program history.

Wolff scored a season-high 23 points twice, reaching the mark against Sioux Falls and MSU Moorhead. She hit a career-best seven shots from behind the 3-point line in the win over MSU Moorhead. She will graduate as the only player in Winona State history to record 1,000 points, 200 3-pointers, 400 assists and 150 steals in their career.
