WBCA announces All-Region nominees for 2016 NCAA Division I Coaches' All-America Team

Eleven from the ACC recognized

ATLANTA (– The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced Wednesday the All-Region nominees for the 2016 WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America Team.  The ACC placed 11 student-athletes on the Region I Team. 

The 10-member Coaches’ All-America Team will be selected from the 52 total candidates from all five regions. 

The selection committee uses an equation to determine a fair number of nominees from each region. The number of Division I institutions in each region is divided by the number of Division I institutions overall to determine a percentage for each region.  This percentage is then multiplied by 52 (the total number of desired finalists) to get the number of finalists for each region.

The 2016 WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America Team will be announced on Saturday, April 2, during NCAA® Women’s Final Four® Super Saturday festivities in Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The ACC’s All-Region honorees are as follows:
