Former Lynden Christian basketball player Jasmine Hommes has been selected the All-Big Sky Conference Player of the Year by the league’s coaches.

Hommes, a senior, averaged 16.3 points per game during the regular season and helped Montana State claim the Big Sky crown with a 14-4 league record. She scored 20 or more points eight times while averaging 28 minutes per game.

“Jasmine will go down as one of the best players in program history,” Bobcats coach Tricia Binford said in a press release.

Hommes follows in the footsteps of her aunt, Blyte Hommes-Hintz, who was selected Big Sky MVP in 1997.

Hommes scored 10 points and grabbed five rebounds in the Bobcats’ 52-50 loss to Idaho State Wednesday, March 9, in the quarterfinals of the Big Sky Tournament in Reno, Nev.
