CHARLOTTESVILLE The Virginia Sports Information Directors Association (VaSID) announced today the 2007-08 University Division Women’s Basketball
All-State Teams and individual awards. Virginia’s Monica Wright was named to the first team, Lyndra Littles was a second team selection and Sharne Zoll and Aisha Mohammed were given honorable mention nods.

James Madison’s Tamera Young was named the Player of the Year and teammate Dawn Evans took home Rookie of the Year honors while Old Dominion’s Wendy Larry earned the Coach of the Year accolade.

Joining Young and Wright on the 2007-08 VaSID University Division All-State First Team were Liberty’s Megan Frazee, ODU’s T.J. Jordan, and Virginia Tech’s Brittany Cook.

Wright, a sophomore guard from Woodbridge, Va., averaged 17.6 points as she helped lead UVa to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. She shot nearly
50 percent from the field and averaged just over 2.4 steals per game as she was named to the All-ACC second team and ACC All-Defensive Team. Wright was named a WBCA Region 2 All-American.

Littles ranked second on the Virginia squad in scoring (16.4 points per game) and was named to the All-ACC third team. An all-tournament team selection at the Rainbow Wahine Classic and the Marriott Cavalier Classic, Littles scored her 1,000th-career point this season and is on Virginia’s all-time Top 10 for career rebounds.

Zoll wrapped up her Cavalier career by becoming the ACC’s all-time assists leader and led her Cavaliers to the second round of the 2008 NCAA Tournament. Zoll broke the 16-year-old record held by former UVa great Dawn Staley (729 career assists) and finished her tenure with 785. A four-year starter, Zoll will leave Virginia as one of the most decorated guards in Cavalier history. In addition to owning the career assists record, she ranks in the all-time top 10 in career steals (234; No. 5) and was a three-time all-conference selection. She was taken as the 29th pick in the 2008 WNBA Draft by the Los Angeles Sparks.

Mohammed completed her first full season in a Cavalier jersey and averaged 13.0 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. She set a new school-record for rebounds in a game this year with 21 at Florida State (Jan. 26). She was also an honorable mention All-ACC selection.
