Meighan Simmons named third-team All-American

Meighan Simmons was honored last month as one of the top women’s basketball players in the SEC.

On Tuesday, Tennessee’s junior guard was recognized as one of the nation’s best. She was named a third-team All-American by the Associated Press.

Simmons was named co-conference player of the year, as voted by the league coaches. She shared the award with Kentucky guard A’dia Mathies, who made AP’s second-team All-America squad.

Simmons was joined on AP’s third team by Texas A&M’s Kelsey Bone, Duke’s Elizabeth Williams, Connecticut’s Stefanie Dolson and Kayla McBride of Notre Dame.

Baylor stars Brittney Griner and Odyssey Sims made the first team along with Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins, Stanford’s Chiney Ogwumike and Delaware’s Elena Delle Donne.

Mathies was joined on the second team by Maryland’s Alyssa Thomas, Connecticut’s Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, Penn State’s Maggie Lucas and Duke’s Chelsea Gray.
