NU's Hooper, Moore named honorable mention All-Americans

Nebraska's Jordan Hooper and Lindsey Moore were named honorable mention All-Americans by the Associated Press on Tuesday.

Hooper, a 6-foot-2 junior forward from Alliance, Neb., captured honorable-mention All-America accolades from the AP for the second straight season. The two-time first-team All-Big Ten performer ranked among the top five players in the conference in scoring (17.9 ppg) and rebounding (8.8 rpg) for the second straight season.

Moore, a 5-foot-9 point guard from Covington, Wash., averaged 15.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game this season. She set school records for career starts (132), career minutes played (4,360) and victories (94), and also set the career assist record (699) while matching the single-season assist mark (195). Moore ended her career ranked 11th in school history in scoring (1,673) and ninth in steals (208). Moore also led the Big Ten with her 2.14 assist-to-turnover ratio.

Former Big 12 foe Baylor produced two first team All-Americans, including 6-foot-8 star senior Brittney Griner, a unanimous selection and just the fifth three-time AP All-American. She was joined on the squad by Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins, Stanford's Chiney Ogwumike, Delaware's Elena Delle Donne and Baylor teammate Odyssey Sims.

With Sims and Griner, it marked the sixth time that teammates were first team All-Americans. Connecticut has done it four times and Tennessee once.

“I think they're two of the best, period,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said.

It's hard to argue. Griner was unstoppable nearly all season, averaging 23.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 5.2 blocks. She also had 11 dunks, including three in one game against Florida State in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Griner and Diggins received 200 points and were unanimous choices by the 40-member national media panel that votes in the weekly Top 25. It's the sixth straight season that there has been at least one unanimous choice. Voting was done before the NCAA tournament.
