Former Alaska Anchorage basketball All-American Hanna Johansson has been selected to have her jersey displayed in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame's "Ring of Honor," UAA head coach Tim Moser announced Tuesday. The Seawolves' 6'2" center is one of approximately 100 collegiate and high school All-Americans from the 2011-12 campaign who will be recognized in the Hall's rotating display in Knoxville, Tenn., which turns over at the end of May.

"This is certainly a fitting tribute for a player of her caliber and character," Moser said. "Her contributions to our program were invaluable both on and off the court, and she'll definitely go down as one of UAA's all-time greats in any sport."
The Gothenburg, Sweden, native became the second player in program history to earn All-America honors and was the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year, leading UAA to a 30-5 overall record and the GNAC regular-season and tournament titles for the 2011-12 season.

Johansson finished as UAA's all-time leader in individual victories (112) and games played (133), along with top-10 ranks in 12 more categories, including points (7th, 1,393), rebounds (2nd, 808), steals (5th, 195), blocks (5th, 70), assists (9th, 247), field-goal pct. (4th, .533), free throws made (6th, 333), games started (5th, 99) and double-doubles (t-7th, 17). Her other senior accolades included Capital One Third Team Academic All-American, consensus First Team All-West Region and West Regional Tournament MVP.
