McCaskill Earns All-American Honorable Mention

The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association has announced its 2020-21 All-American honorees and Oklahoma Panhandle State University’s Cassia McCaskill has earned honorable mention recognition. McCaskill is a native of Townsville, Australia and in her second season as a member of the Aggies.

University President, Dr. Tim Faltyn stated, “Congrats to Cassia McCaskill for being named a 2020-2021 All-American Honoree for Women’s Basketball! I am excited to see great things come from this remarkable young woman!”

McCaskill helped the OPSU team to its second Sooner Athletic Conference berth – in the past three seasons – in 2020-21. She was second team All-SAC, as well, this past season.

McCaskill averaged 20.3 points per game, which ranked 14th in the nation for the NAIA. McCaskill also ranked among the national leaders in: free throw percentage (25th/85.1%); three-point field goals made (42nd/2.54 per game), and; three-point field goal percentage (49th/39.8%).

McCaskill was a model of consistency for the Aggies, as she registered double-digit scoring games in 12 of 13 contests this year. She had a career high of 38 points on February 6 versus Southwestern Assemblies of God University, with five total games of 20-plus points.

“I am extremely proud of Cassia and it is well-deserved honor,” OPSU Head Women’s Basketball Coach Victor Esparza said. “She put in a lot of hard work in the off-season to get to this point. I can’t wait to see her take that next step in her career at Panhandle State.”
