She received the Tom Hansen Pac-12 Conference Medal in 2013 as Utah's top senior female student-athlete based on achievement in scholarship, athletics and leadership. She was also a Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarship recipient in 2013 as well as a three academic all-conference honoree.
As a senior in 2012-13, Messer led the Pac-12 in 3-point shooting percentage (.440) and was a first-team All-Pac-12 Academic Team selection to help the Utes advance to the WNIT Final. She scored a career-high 18 points against Northern Colorado on Nov. 20, 2012.
Messer has a B.S. degree in management from the University of Utah and a Master’s of science in business administration from Westminster College.
