  • WBCA Picks Top 20 Seniors for All-America Game
    By WBCA Communications Staff

    The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) is pleased to announce the selection of the nation's top 20 high school senior female basketball players to the 2003 WBCA High School All-America Game, presented by Nike. This marks 12 years that the WBCA has sanctioned a girls' high school All-America Team.

    The 20 players who have been selected to participate in this year's WBCA High School All-America Game will be assigned to two, 10-player teams. The college-style regulation game is scheduled for Friday, April 4, at Georgia Tech's Alexander Memorial Coliseum in Atlanta, Georgia. The game is scheduled to tip-off during "The Night of All-Stars" at 6:00 p.m. (EST), followed by the WBCA All-Star Challenge, which will feature the top 20 senior collegiate players in the nation. This is the first time in the 12-year history of the game, due to recent NCAA legislation, that college coaches will be able to watch the High School All-Stars in person. "The Night of All-Stars" is the kick-off of the 22nd Annual WBCA National Convention, which takes place at the site of the NCAA Women's Final Four.

    Here is a list of players to participate in this year's WBCA High School All-America Game:

    "I believe that this is one of the most balanced teams we have had in a long time, which made choosing this team harder than any in the recent history due to the amount of players capable of playing in this game," said Brad Smith, chair of the WBCA High School All-America Selection Committee and girl's basketball coach at Oregon City High School in Oregon City, Ore. "The majority of these players will have an immediate impact at their college next year."
