TCU is picked to finish fourth in the Big 12, the highest preseason ranking since it joined the Big 12 in 2012. And the Frogs had one player selected to the All-Big 12 Team -- senior forward Amy Okonkwo. Okonkow is coming off a season in which she averaged 14.4 points and 5.8 rebounds.
Two other Frogs were selected honorable mention -- Adeola Akomolafe and Jordan Moore.
Baylor and Texas garnered the most honors.
Baylor is the preseason favorite followed by Texas, West Virginia and then TCU.
The preseason player of the year is Baylor’s Kalani Brown, who averaged a double-double last season (20.1 points, 10.2 rebounds). The newcomer of the year, meanwhile, is Texas’ Danni Williams. The co-freshmen of the year honors went to Texas’ Charli Collier and Baylor’s NaLyssa Smith.
The voting is done by the conference’s head coaches, who are not allowed to vote for their teams or own players.
The TCU women’s team starts its season on Nov. 6 with a home game against Duquesne.
