Ogwumike, Sims and Thomas highlight women's basketball All-America team

Chiney Ogwumike has become the ninth player to be a unanimous selection on The Associated Press preseason All-America team.

Ogwumike received all 36 votes from a national media panel Tuesday. Brittney Griner, Elena Delle Donne and Skylar Diggins were all unanimous choices last season.

The Stanford forward was joined on the preseason team by Baylor's Odyssey Sims and Maryland's Alyssa Thomas. All three seniors were on the preseason team last season. UConn teammates Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Breanna Stewart rounded out the team, and they are the seventh set of teammates to be on the preseason team.

Mosqueda-Lewis and Stewart helped UConn win its eighth national championship in April and have UConn back at No. 1 in the preseason Top 25 poll.
