Ohio State sophomore forward Dorka Juhasz has earned even more recognition, this time from the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

Juhasz was one of 52 players recognized on the WBCA All-Region Teams, which will dwindle its list down to 10 players for an overall All-America Team on April 2.

There are 10 players in Juhasz’s region, which includes eight total players from the Big Ten: Grace Berger (Indiana), Kaila Charles (Maryland), Kathleen Doyle (Iowa), Arella Guirantes (Rutgers), Juhasz, Naz Hillmon (Michigan), Ali Patberg (Indiana) and Lindsey Pulliam (Northwestern). The other two players in the region are Becca Hittner out of Drake and Chante Stonewall out of DePaul.

The second-year forward led the Buckeyes with 13.2 points and 9.4 rebounds per game while shooting 47.6 percent (160 of 336) from the field and 39.6 percent (40 of 101) from three. The impressive stats were enough to get Juhasz on the First-Team All-Big Ten lineup, the only Ohio State player on the first or second team.

After averaging a double-double in the four games in Indianapolis, Juhasz was also named to the Big Ten All-Tournament Team along with Hillmon, Patberg and Maryland’s Ashley Owusu and Stephanie Jones.

Juhasz is looking to become the first Ohio State player to make the WBCA First Team since Kelsey Mitchell, who made it three times from 2016-18. Since the honor was created in 1975, seven different Buckeyes have made the first team a total of 15 times: Jantel Lavender (three times), Jessica Davenport (three times), Katie Smith (twice), Nikita Lowery, Tracey Hall (twice) and Franci Washington.
