The John R. Wooden Award announced the women’s All American Team for 2011-12:

Two of the five women’s All Americans are repeat selections: Brittney Griner of Baylor was a 2011 pick, and Stanford senior Nneka Ogwumike is a three-time Wooden Award All American. Ogwumike took Stanford to its third straight perfect season in conference play, leading the Pac-12 in scoring (21.6 ppg), and ranking second in rebounding (10.5) and free throw percentage (82.8%). Griner ranks No. 6 nationally in scoring (23.4), and leads the country in blocked shots (5.1). Her Bears are ranked No. 1 and are enjoying a perfect 38-0 season.

Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins, averaging 16.8 points and 5.7 assists, appeared on last season’s ballot, but did not make the 2011 All American Team despite a strong post-season. Two of the five schools represented on the women’s team are appearing on the All American Team for the first time: Delaware and Green Bay. The Blue Hens’ Elena Delle Donne leads the nation in scoring at 28.1 ppg, while Green Bay senior Julie Wojta averaged 19.5 points and 9.9 rebounds.

The 36th annual Wooden Award Gala will take place on Friday, April 6, 2012 and will honor the men’s and women’s winners, All Americans and the Legends of Coaching winner Geno Auriemma of Connecticut. The John R. Wooden Award winner will be announced on ESPN at the Final Four in New Orleans, Louisiana.
