Atlanta, Ga. (hurricanesports.com) – University of Miami junior forward Tamara James (Dania, Fla.) was named honorable-mention All-America by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association on Saturday.
James, who was named AP honorable-mention All-America by the Associated Press on March 23, concluded the 2004-05 regular season ranked second in the NCAA and first in the ACC in scoring, averaging 22.9 points per game and led the Hurricanes with 6.9 rebounds per game on her way to being named a All-ACC First Team selection.
A three-time ACC Player of the Week selection, James was the only player in the league to score in double figures in every game this season and had more 30-point (5) and 20-point (17) games than any other player in the ACC.
