AMES – The preseason recognition continues to roll in for junior guard Ashley Joens, who was named to the 2021 Jersey Mike’s Naismith Women’s Watch List, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced today.

Joens capped off a banner sophomore season as a consensus honorable mention All-American, averaging 20.5 points and 10.9 rebounds, as the only player to average over 20.0 points and 10.0 rebounds. Joens, who became the first Cyclone sophomore to reach 1,000 career points, was also named a unanimous First-Team All-Big 12 selection. Joens most recently received votes for the AP preseason All-America Team. Though she did not make the five-member team, she was one of just seven student-athletes to receive votes.

The midseason 30 team will be announced in early February; players who do not make the watch list are still eligible to be selected for the midseason 30 team. Then, the competition will be narrowed down to 10 national semifinalists on March 2, 2021, and four finalists will be named on March 19, 2021. The winner of the 2021 Jersey Mike’s Naismith Trophy for Women’s Player of the Year will be announced on April 3, 2021.

Iowa State, which is currently ranked 15th nationally in the Preseason AP Poll, will open the 2020-21 season on Nov. 25 at noon against Omaha in Hilton Coliseum.
