Stanford's Ogwumike Sisters Named AP All-Americans

The women's college basketball AP All-American teams were announced today and there was history made on two fronts.

The first team included Nnemkadi Ogwumike and the second team featured Ogwumike's younger sister, Chiney. The Ogwumike sisters are the first pair of siblings to be named as All-Americans in the same season and Nnemkadi is one of two unanimous selections.

Nnemkadi is joined by Baylor's Brittney Griner, Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins, Maryland's Alyssa Thomas and Delaware's Elena Delle Donne on the first team. All but Delle Donne are still playing in the NCAA tournament.

Baylor's Odyssey Sims, Miami's Shenise Johnson, Ohio State's Samantha Prahalis and Wisconsin-Green Bay's Julie Wotja were also named to the second team with Chiney.

This marked the first year since the AP All-American team was first instituted in 1995 that a member of the UConn Huskies or Tennessee Lady Vols were not on the first team, further showing a shift in the dominance of the Huskies and Lady Vols in women's college basketball.
