Four Big Ten players earned All-America recognition, it was announced today by the Associated Press. Ohio State's Samantha Prahalis earned second-team honors, while team Tayler Hill, Nebraska's Jordan Hooper and Penn State's Maggie Lucas were awarded honorable mention distinction.

Prahalis, who earned Big Ten Player of the Year accolades following the regular season, is the 12th All-American in Ohio State history and ended her Buckeye career as the Big Ten's all-time leader in assists with 901. Hill finished as the Big Ten's top scorer among all games and was a member of the conference's All-Big Ten and All-Defensive Team.

Hooper became the first sophomore in Nebraska history to earn All-America honors, scoring nearly 19.0 points and leading the Big Ten in rebounding at 9.3 per contest. Lucas, also a sophomore, ranked third in the conference in scoring at 19.5 points per game and surpassed the 1,000 career points milestone this season. Both Hooper and Lucas were first-team All-Big Ten performers last season.
