(Ames) It's been nearly a week since Hallie Christofferson's incredible Iowa State women's basketball career came to an end. The Cyclones were eliminated from the NCAA Tournament in the first round by Florida State Saturday.
Hamlin native and former Exira star Hallie Christofferson has had some time to reflect on her career and admits she exceeded even her own expecations. She finished her four year run in Ames as the 6th highest scorer in Cyclones women's basketball history. Several of her other career marks rank in the top 10 in ISU's record books.
She points to a combination of hard work, coaching, and having a good support group as big keys to her success. It's been quite a story to go from the Class 1A high school level to the Big 12 in college. She was twice named first team all-conference.
The WNBA Draft is held in mid-April. Christofferson says if given the opportunity to play professional basketball in the U.S. she'll take it. There's also the possibility of playing oversees. From what she has heard from scouts it's tough to tell exactly what her draft stock might be however, Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly stated in a radio show early this year that she is capable of playing professionally.
