UConn junior center Stefanie Dolson and sophomore forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis are Region 1 nominees for the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association All-America team.
From the 52 players nominated over seven regions, the WBCA will pick its 10-player All-America team. That squad will be announced Saturday, April 6, during the NCAA Final Four Super Saturday festivities at New Orleans Arena.
Mosqueda-Lewis is averaging 17.5 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Huskies (29-4), who will open NCAA tournament Bridgeport Regional play Saturday against Idaho at Gampel Pavilion. She is shooting 50.0 percent from 3-point land. Dolson is averaging 14.5 points on 58.8 percent shooting from the floor and 7.0 rebounds. Both were named to the all-Big East first team earlier this month.
Other Region 1 nominees are DePaul’s Anna Martin, Georgetown’s Sugar Rodgers, Princeton’s Niveen Rasheed, St. John’s Nadirah McKenith and Shenneika Smith, Louisville’s Shoni Schimmel, Notre Dame’s Natalie Achonwa, Skylar Diggins, and Kayla McBride, and South Florida’s Andrea Smith.
