A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
BASN’s ’08-09 Preseason All-America Team
Angel McCoughtry, Louisville
A great shooter who led her team to its furthest venture ever into the NCAA Tournament last year. She averaged 23.8 ppg and is a demon on defense.
Maya Moore Connecticut
She’s not only a first team All-American but also the Preseason Player of the Year. She’s one of the greatest woman to ever play college basketball. Daughter of Mike Dabny, former Rutgers All-American. She was the first freshman in Big East history to ever be Player of the Year. She had 678 points last year.
Epiphanny Prince, Rutgers
The leader this year of a very young and very talented Rutgers team. She’s terrific beyond the arc both shooting from the field and off of the dribble. One of the most prolific scorers in New York high school history, she once had over a 100 points in a high school game.
Kristi Toliver, Maryland
This senior is a combo guard who’s phenomenal from long range and had 78 treys last year. Who can ever forget her shot that won the National Championship for Maryland when she was only a freshman in Boston. She has an amazing 1.70 assist to turnover ratio.
Courtney Paris, Oklahoma
This senior center played in 31 games last year and had 31 double-doubles. Last season she led the nation in rebounding and also scored 18.6 ppg. She is a sure fire WNBA player and maybe the first pick in next year’s draft. She certainly will be the first pick for any team needing a quality center.
