Baylor's Sims Earns Another National Honor

The hardware continues to come for Baylor’s Odyssey Sims, the Big 12 Women’s Player of the Year.

Earlier this week, the Big 12’s leading scorer was named to All-America teams by the Associated Press and the National Basketball Writers Association, and on Tuesday she was named to the 2014 John R. Wooden Women’s All-America Team.

Sims is one of two players who are repeat members of the Wooden Women’s All-America Team from last year. The Baylor senior guard averaged 28.5 points, No. 2 nationally, and 4.6 assists per game. She helped lead her team to a 32-5 record this season and the Big 12 regular-season and postseason tournament championships. The Lady Bears advanced to the regional championship round this season before losing to top-seed and undefeated Notre Dame.

Also named to the Wooden All-America Team for a second consecutive year is 6-4 senior forward Chiney Ogwumike from Stanford. The other three honorees are senior guard Kayla McBride of Notre Dame, sophomore forward Breanna Stewart of the University of Connecticut and senior forward Alyssa Thomas of Maryland.
