2013-14 AP All-Americans

For the first time since the 2001-02 season and the second time in program history, five Huskies have earned All-American recognition from the Associated Press as announced by the organization Tuesday morning. UConn All-American So. F Breanna Stewart headlined the squad as a unanimous First Team AP All-American selection. The Senior All-American duo of G Bria Hartley and C Stefanie Dolson earned Second Team choices. UConn So. G Moriah Jefferson and All-American Jr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis were recognized with Honorable Mention honors. The feat marks the second time in program history that five Connecticut players have received AP recognition. In 2001-02, the combination of Sue Bird, Swin Cash, Diana Taurasi, Asjha Jones and Tamika Williams collected five AP All-American accolades en route to winning the first of what would be three consecutive National Championships.
