Oklahoma State’s Natasha Mack has just been announced as the 2021 WBCA Defensive Player of the Year.
The WBCA, Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, has given the award since 2007 and Mack is the first player from OSU to receive the accolade.
She stacks this award on top of her decorated defensive season where she was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and was a unanimous Big 12 All-Defensive Team selection.
"We celebrate Natasha and appreciate her contribution to her team as well as to the game of women's basketball,” said WBCA Executive Director Danielle Donehew.
Mack broke the OSU single-season blocks record, averaging 4.0 per game and finishing with 112, leading the nation.
She also had an outstanding year on the glass, averaging 9.2 defensive rebounds per game, ranking fourth in the country.
