ATLANTA — University of California San Diego women’s basketball senior forward Dalayna Sampton has received Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-America Honorable Mention honors, the association announced on Sunday.

Sampton, the 2017-18 California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Player of the Year, was also named to the Division II Conference Commission Association (CCA) All-West Region Team last week in addition to the NCAA Division II West Region All-Tournament Team.

A native of Vallejo, Calif., Sampton averaged 14.6 points and a team-high 10.9 rebounds this season en route to leading the Tritons to a 28-5 overall record, the CCAA regular-season championship and an appearance in the NCAA Division II West Region Semifinals.

Sampton finished the season ranked fourth in the nation in total rebounds (359) and 12th in rebounds per game (10.9). She also ranked tied for ninth in the country with 17 double-doubles.

Founded in 1981, the WBCA is the professional association for coaches of women’s and girls’ basketball at all levels of competition. The WBCA offers educational resources that coaches need to help make themselves better leaders, teachers and mentors to their players; provides opportunities for coaches to connect with peers in the profession; serves as the unifying voice of a diverse community of coaches to the organizations that control the game; and celebrates those coaches, players and other individuals who excel each year and contribute to the advancement of the sport.
