RENO, Nev. - Idaho junior Yinka Olorunnife was named to the Western Athletic Conference All-Tournament Team on Saturday at the conclusion of the WAC Basketball Tournament at Reno, Nev.

The third-year post player became the second Idaho women's basketball player to be named to the WAC All-Tournament Team after averaging 23 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2 steals and 1.5 assists while shooting 18-of-25 (.720) overall and 6-of-10 (.600) from 3-point range in the team's two games of the week.

Olorunnife helped lead the Vandals to a 75-63 win over New Mexico State in the first round to advance to the team's first semifinal round since joining the WAC, before Idaho fell to Fresno State by an 80-66 margin on Friday.

Leilani Mitchell was the first Vandal to earn WAC All-Tournament honors in the team's inaugural WAC season in 2005-06.

Also on the All-Tournament team were Jaleesa Ross and Hayley Munro of Fresno State and Adrienne Johnson and Shanavia Dowdell of Louisiana Tech. Dowdell was named MVP of the tournament.
