Former Women's Basketball star Makes All-Decade Team
Posted: Wednesday, February 13, 2008
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - Jayme Anderson (Janesville, Wis./Parker) may have only played two seasons for the UW-Eau Claire women's basketball team, but in that time made a big impact, and has recently been named to the D3hoops.com All-Decade Third Team.
Anderson started her collegiate basketball career at Beloit College where she earned Third Team All-American honors her freshman year. She then made the move to play for the Blugolds under head coach Lisa Stone, who now coaches the Wisconsin Badgers women's basketball team.
Playing for the Blugolds from 1998-2000, Anderson earned Third Team All-American honors in her first season, and in 2000 was a First Team All-American selection. In two seasons at Eau Claire, playing in only 57 games, Anderson is tied for eighth on the Blugolds all-time career scoring list with 1,195 points. Arlene Meinholz, who played in 112 games for the Blugolds, is at the top of the list with 1,834 points. Anderson is also 22nd on the program's all-time career rebounding list with 433 rebounds.
As a Blugold, Anderson was also named First Team All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) twice and in her final season was the WIAC's player of the year. She also has WIAC career records for highest field goal percentage (57.3 percent, 461-for-804) and for highest scoring average with 21.0 points per game.
When Lisa Stone went to Division I Drake University (Iowa), Anderson followed to play her senior season and also played an important role on the team. She was named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year for her contributions on a team that made it to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA tournament and had a 25-8 overall record.
