Four SEC women's basketball players have been named to the AP All-America teams.

Kentucky sophomore Rhyne Howard leads the group, becoming the only player to be named First-Team All-America in the conference. She also became the first player in school history to earn first-team honors.

Howard led the league in scoring with 23.4 points per game and averaged 6.5 rebounds, leading the Wildcats to a 22-8 regular-season record.

"Rhyne is the definition of an All-American and one of those rare players that impacts the game in absolutely every statistical category. She's so much more than a prolific scorer," Kentucky coach Matthew Mitchell said. "She has zero weaknesses which makes her the most dynamic player in college basketball."

South Carolina freshman Aliyah Boston and Texas A&M junior Chennedy Carter earned second-team honors.

Boston averaged 12.5 points per game, 9.4 rebounds per game and shot 61 percent from the field. Carter averaged 21.3 points, 3.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.

South Carolina senior Tyasha Harris earned third-team honors, averaging a career-high 12.0 points and SEC-leading 5.7 assists per game.
