All The Time
In her first three seasons as a collegiate athlete, Kristi Rohr was named All-Big West in all of them. As a freshman Rohr was named Second Team All-Big West and to the Big West's All-Freshman team. As a sophomore and junior Rohr was named First Team All-Big West. She was also named to the Big West's All-Tournament team as a junior.
If you had to describe Kristi Rohr in one word, that word would be "reliable". When she comes to the gym, she comes to play, and she always gets it done. The always solid Rohr scored in double-figures in 27 of UCSB's 30 games last year, and notched 20 or more points six times as a junior. She was also one of only three Gauchos to shoot over 50% on the season, finishing the campaign with a 51.2% mark.
When it comes to cleaning up the boards, Rohr gets most of her work done on the offensive glass. Eighty-one of the 151 (53.6%) rebounds the First Team All-Big West selection grabbed last year were of the offensive variety. In fact, Rohr grabbed at least one offensive rebound in 29 of UCSB's 30 games last season, and at least one in the Gaucho's first 28 games of the year.
On January 10, 1999 Kristi Rohr became the twelfth player in UCSB history to record her 1,000th career point, doing it just 13 games into her junior season. At the time, Rohr was the fastest player to the milestone in school history, until exactly 13 games later when Erin Buescher accomplished the feat in her sophomore season.
