An Aztec Abroad: Women's Basketball's McKynzie Fort
July 13, 2017
SAN DIEGO -
Rising senior McKynzie Fort, a three-time All-Mountain West honoree on the women's basketball team, had the experience of a lifetime this summer, spending two weeks in the Dominican Republic as part of SDSU's College of Extended Studies.
During the 2016-17 season, Fort became just the fourth Aztec to garner a spot on an All-Mountain West team each of her first three seasons at San Diego State after collecting an All-Mountain West first team nod this year. The only Aztec to start all 30 games, Fort finished the year in the league rankings: second in points per game (15.9), ninth in free throw percentage (.784), 11th in field goal percentage (.436), 12th in minutes played per game (31.9) and 13th in assists per game (2.5). Additionally, the Fontana, Calif., native was 116-for-148 from the free throw line, tied for the eighth-most made in SDSU single-season history.
A kinesiology with a fitness specialist concentration, Fort reached the career 1,000-point mark at San José State (1-11-17), the 21st Aztec and eighth SDSU third-year to accomplish the feat, after notching season highs in points (29) and rebounds (11) for her second-career double-double.
