NEW YORK — Senior guard Kelsey Mitchell of Ohio State was named to the Associated Press women's basketball preseason All-America team Tuesday.

She is joined by Connecticut's Gabby Williams, Katie Lou Samuelson and Napheesa Collier, marking the first time a school has had three players on the team.

The fifth member is South Carolina's A'ja Wilson, who was a unanimous choice by the 32-member national media panel Tuesday that selects the weekly poll.

Mitchell, who was second with 31 votes, became the eighth player to be a three-time preseason All-American, joining Breanna Stewart, Alana Beard, Maya Moore, Brittney Griner, Chamique Holdsclaw, Tamika Catchings and Courtney Paris.

The AP first started choosing a preseason All-America team before the 1994-95 season.
