NEW ORLEANS, La. - - Tulane's Grace Daley added another entry to her ever-growing resume on Tuesday, as the guard picked up All-America honors from the Associated Press.
A third-team All-America choice by the AP, Daley was one of just 15 total players selected to the three teams. She has now been honored with All-America honors by three publications so far this season. She was named a second-team All-American by the Women's Basketball Journal and a third-team All-American by the Women's Basketball News Service. In addition, Daley is also a finalist for WBCA/Kodak All-America recognition for the third straight season.
A senior from Ocala, Fla., Daley has won a host of awards this season. She was chosen as the Conference USA Player of the Year, giving her a clean sweep of the five individual awards handed out by the conference. She was also a first-team All-Conference USA pick for the third straight season and was named to the C-USA All-Tournament team after helping the Green Wave win its second consecutive C-USA Tournament title. As recognition for her accomplishments this season, Daley has been selected as one of just 17 Division I seniors to play in the WBCA All-Star Challenge during the women's Final Four in Philadelphia.
Daley heads into the NCAA Tournament as the nation's eighth-leading scorer at 21.3 points per game. She also averages 5.9 rebounds per contest and leads the Green Wave with 3.9 assists per outing. She earned honorable mention All-America honors from the Associated Press last season and has been a WBCA/Kodak honorable mention All-American in each of the past two campaigns.
Tulane begins play in its sixth consecutive NCAA Tournament, as the sixth-seeded Green Wave will face 11th-seeded Vermont in the first round at Lubbock, Texas. Saturday's game between the Green Wave and the Catamounts is set for a 6 p.m. CST tip off.
