One of the key's to having a successful college basketball team is having a go-to player, a star who can be relied on game in and game out.
The Utah women seem to have that in Michelle Plouffe.
A 6-foot-1 combination forward, Plouffe has honed her craft for three years. Now, on the cusp of being a senior, national pundits are beginning to take notice.
On Thursday afternoon, Plouffe was named a third team All-American by The Sporting News. Plouffe has been on the Associated Press All-American team as an honorable mention selection in each of the past two seasons. She's on pace to become the third player in Utah history to reach 2,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds.
