RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. - University of California San Diego women’s basketball senior forward Dalayna Sampton has been named Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) All-America honorable mention, the association announced on Tuesday.

Sampton, the 2017-18 California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Player of the Year, was also named to the D2CCA All-West Region First Team last week in addition to earning Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-America honorable mention on Sunday.

A native of Vallejo, 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, a 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.

The D2CCA encourages and promotes Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences as they discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics and works closely with the NCAA as a communications channel to NCAA Division II member colleges and universities.
