A native of <?xml:namespace prefix=”st1″ ns=”urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags”?>Dania, Fla., James led the ACC in scoring throughout the regular season, averaging 20.9 points per game and was the only player in the league to score in double figures in all 27 games.

The honor marks the second First Team All-ACC selection for James who was a 2005 honoree.

Taylor, who hails from Harlem, N.Y., ranked sixth in the league in scoring with 15.6 points per game. She finished the regular season fifth in the ACC in free throw percentage (.824) and fourth in steals (2.26 spg).
