Hayes a third-team All-American

UConn senior Tiffany Hayes was named to the Associated Press third team All-American team.

Hayes, a member of two national championship teams at UConn, is the Huskies' second leading scorer heading into tonight's Elite Eight game against Kentucky with an average of 14.6 points per game, has a team-leading 79 steals, is second on the team with 206 rebounds and is one of three Connecticut players with more than 100 assists. UConn is 146-6 in games that Hayes has played making her the third winningest player in women's Division I history behind only her former teammates Maya Moore who was 150-4, and Kalana Greene (148-9). Tina Charles was also 146-6 during her UConn career..

Sophomore guard Bria Hartley (13.9 points, 134 assists) and freshman guard/forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (team-high 14.9 points per game, 91 3-pointers) were honorable mention selections.

The first team consisted of Baylor's Brittney Griner, Nneka Ogwumike of Stanford, Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins, Delaware's Elena Delle Donne and Alyssa Thomas of Maryland. In the spirit of full disclosure I am only of the AP voters and that happens to be the first team on my ballot.
