Associated Press

A’ja Wilson of South Carolina and Kelsey Mitchell of Ohio State lead The Associated Press’ preseason women’s All-America team.

Both were honored last season as first-team All-Americas.

Brianna Turner of Notre Dame, Nina Davis of Baylor and Kelsey Plum of Washington round out the team released Thursday.

Wilson, a 6-foot-5 junior forward received 32 votes from the 33-member national media panel that selects the weekly poll. Mitchell had 31 votes, two more than Turner, a 6-3 junior.

The Ohio State guard, who averaged 26.1 points last season, and Davis were both on the preseason team last year.

It’s the first time in three years there wasn’t a unanimous choice on the team.
