For the third straight year, Baylor guard Odyssey Sims has been named to the 10-member Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-America team. The announcement was made in a ceremony held at Bridgestone Arena during the 2014 NCAA Women's Final Four Super Saturday festivities.

Players were selected from 52 finalists by the selection committee at an in-person meeting held during the 2014 WBCA National Convention.

"I think it gets sweeter just every year. I mean you don't really know, you just play hard, you don't think about awards when you're out there on the court. For me, being my third time, I think this one is bittersweet, being my senior year, I'm just happy just to be here, be a part of the organization every year, and really enjoy myself," said Sims. ""Most importantly, I'm representing my university. Anytime I can do that and I wear Baylor, my Baylor jersey on my chest one more time, it means a lot to me."

She was also named USBWA All-American for the third time and to the AP All-American first team for the second consecutive year. Sims was named the Frances Pomeroy Naismith winner, collected Big 12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors. A four-year starter, Sims finished her Baylor with a 140-10 record which included a national championship. She averaged 28.5 points a game as a senior, set a Big 12 Conference single season scoring record with 1,054 points and also broke the league's single season scoring average record. She became just the second Division I women's player to score over 1,000 points in a season.
