Washington’s Kelsey Plum Monday was a unanimous choice for the Associated Press women’s basketball All-America team. Plum, who led the nation in scoring this past season and broke the NCAA career scoring record, is the first from UW to make the AP first team.

Fellow UW senior Chantel Osahor, the nation’s leading rebounder, was named to the second team. Washington was the first team in NCAA history to have the national leaders in points and rebounds.

Plum received the maximum 33 votes from a national media panel that also selects the Associated Press Top 25 each week. She is joined by South Carolina’s A’ja Wilson, Maryland’s Brionna Jones and UConn’s Napheesa Collier and Katie Lou Samuelson.

Voting took place before the NCAA Tournament, in which Washington advanced to the Sweet Sixteen before losing in a regional semifinal in Oklahoma City to Mississippi State Saturday.

Plum, also a finalist for the Naismith and Wade trophies, awarded to the Division I Player of the Year, averaged 32.6 points per game with a high of 57, a Pac-12 record, against the University of Utah Feb. 25. She scored 3,431 points, 1,013 this past season, most in NCAA history. She also made 890 free throws, another NCAA record.

    Number 10 should be retired at the UW for women’s basketball.

      Bank on it – She’s the Husky GOAT!

        Can’t imagine anyone out-performing her. But I don’t think jersey retirements are a custom at UW or many other colleges.

    Here’s one for debate: Is Plum the greatest Husky ever? More so than Emtman? If she wins the POY awards AND is a top draft choice, I’d have to say so. The Dawgs GOAT is what she is!
    What say you?
    Art – this is a great opportunity to set up a vote.

      There are too many for any one to be declared ‘greatest Husky ever’. Certainly Kelsey’s in the list. So is McElhenny. Danielle Lawrie–Player of the Year and National Champion. 90 years back–George Wilson. Emtman, obviously. Courtney Thompson. The comparisons just aren’t one-to-one. Perhaps the 1936 men’s eight.

    • art thiel

      Not a bad idea. Who else is on the list? Roy. Houbregs. McElhenny. Wilson. Tui. Schloredt. Boys in the ’36 boat.

  • Congratulation for being women’s basketball All-America team. She is a very nice player of ncaa college womens basketball (University of Washington) and he has played very nice in this season. She is the first from UW to make the AP 1st team.It is very honorable moment for the team and her.
