Stanford freshman guard Candice Wiggins was honored in Indianapolis Saturday when the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and Eastman Kodak Company announced the 2005 NCAA Division I Kodak/WBCA All-America Basketball Team. A selection committee representing each of the eight WBCA geographical regions selects 10 of the top women's basketball players in the nation to be honored.
