FORT WORTH, Texas
The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and Eastman Kodak Company announced that TCU junior forward Sandora Irvin is one of 48 finalists for the 2004 NCAA Division I Kodak/WBCA All-America Basketball Team. WBCA head coach members from each of the eight WBCA geographical regions determined the finalists. Four others from Conference USA were among those selected, including DePaul's Khara and Charlene Smith, Houston's Chandi Jones and Louisville's Sara Nord.
Irvin is enjoying her most productive season with TCU, averaging 16.5 points, 12.3 rebounds and 4.0 blocks. She was selected to the All-Conference USA First Team and picked up her second-straight Defensive Player of the Year award. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., native also snagged a spot on the C-USA All-Tournament Team for the second year in a row.
School records have fallen this season thanks to Irvin, the first of which was TCU's career rebound record previously held by Janice Dziuk, who had 778 from 1986-1990. At the moment, Irvin has 957 to her credit. She also set a new standard for rebounds in a single season, which currently stands at 343. Irvin set the old record last season with 320. If she can block 16 more shots this season, she will break the school and C-USA record of 128 from a year ago.
