Oct. 30, 2007

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- In a vote of Pac-10 women's basketball media members, five players have been named to the 2007-08 preseason All-Pac-10 team, including Jayne Appel and Candice Wiggins of STANFORD, Devanei Hampton and Ashley Walker of CALIFORNIA and Briann January of ARIZONA STATE.

Appel, the 2007 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year, earned All-Pac-10 honorable mention accolades in her first collegiate campaign as she finished the season 12th in the Pac-10 in scoring (13.2 ppg), seventh in rebounding (7.5 rpg) and second in field goal percentage (.538). Averaging less than 20 minutes per game, Appel led the Conference with 61 blocks, establishing a single-season Stanford record.

Hampton, the first Cal women's basketball player ever to be selected as Pac-10 Player of the Year, finished her award-winning year seventh in the Pac-10 in scoring (16.6 ppg), third in rebounding (8.0 rpg) and fifth in field goal percentage (.528). Named to the 2007-08 Wade Trophy Watch List, Hampton owns the third-highest career scoring average in Cal history (16.1 ppg).

January earned 2006-07 All-Pac-10 honorable mention honors as she finished third in the Pac-10 in steals (2.1 spg), fourth in assists (4.0 apg), fourth in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.67) and sixth in free throw percentage (.817). January scored in double figures 17 times, including 13 times in ASU's last 19 games.

Walker led the Pac-10 with 12 double-doubles as a sophomore, ranking third in the league in scoring (17.3 ppg), first in rebounding (8.7 rpg), third in field goal percentage (.532) and fourth in blocked shots (1.34). A 2006-07 All-Pac-10 selection, Walker led the team in scoring 15 times last year, notching 10 20-point games.

Wiggins, the 2005 and 2006 Pac-10 Player of the Year, is a three-time Kodak/WBCA All-American and enters her senior season as one of the most decorated players in Pac-10 history. On virtually every preseason watch list, Wiggins finished sixth in the Conference in scoring (16.9 ppg), second in 3-point field goal percentage (.441) and first in 3-point field goals made (82) in 2006-07, despite missing five games because of injury.
