BU's Griner Tops AP’s Preseason All-America Team

(October 30, 2012)--Brittney Griner Tuesday became the third player to be a two-time unanimous choice on The Associated Press' women's basketball preseason All-America team, receiving all 40 votes from a national media panel.

Griner joined former UConn star Maya Moore and Duke great Alana Beard in that select club.

Griner isn't the only unanimous choice on the preseason team.

Delaware senior Elena Delle Donne and Notre Dame senior Skylar Diggins were also on all 40 ballots.

Stanford's Chiney Ogwumike (23 votes), Maryland's Alyssa Thomas (19) and Baylor's Odyssey Sims (19) rounded out the squad.

It's the first time there's been a tie for the final spot.

Only five other players have been unanimous selections, Courtney Paris, Chamique Holdsclaw, Diana Taurasi, Seimone Augustus and Candace Parker.
