Sims Selected USBWA All-American
March 31, 2014

Odyssey Sims (Baylor) was named to the 2013-14 U.S. Basketball Writers Association Women's All-America Team, as selected by the entire association membership.

Sims earned her third USBWA All-American distinction and was named the association’s Freshman of the Year in 2011. She joins former teammate Brittney Griner as Baylor’s only three-time honorees, Sophia Young earned USBWA All-American honors in 2005 and 2006.

The 5-8 senior guard is averaging 28.4 ppg, which ranks No. 2 nationally, as well as 4.6 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 steals. She is shooting .446 from the floor, .399 from 3-point range and .804 from the free throw line. 

With 1,021 points in 2013-14, Sims became just the second NCAA Division I women’s player to score over 1,000 points in a season. Jackie Stiles (Missouri State) set the record in the 2000-01 season with 1,062 points.

The USBWA Women's All-America Team is the nation's best 10 players, regardless of position, as selected by the USBWA membership based on regular-season performance. These 10 standouts are finalists for the USBWA's Ann Meyers Drysdale Award as the national player of the year, which will be announced Sunday at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., at 2:30 p.m. CT prior to the start of the NCAA Women's Final Four.
