Ashley Joens to pass on 2022 WNBA Draft, return to Iowa State

Iowa State star Ashley Joens isn’t done rewriting Iowa State history.

The Cyclones senior star, already one of the most accomplished players in school history, announced on Twitter on Monday that she will pass on the WNBA Draft and return to Iowa State for one more season. Joens will take advantage of the extra season of eligibility awarded to athletes following the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s huge news for the Cyclones who just completed one of the best seasons in school history and were expected to enter next season with gigantic expectations. Iowa State already returns point guard Emily Ryan and guard Lexi Donarski, the Big 12 Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year. And now they’ll have Joens, who has already solidified herself as one of the greatest players in Iowa State history.
