Brink on Wooden Award All American Team


STANFORD, Calif. – For the second time in her career, Cameron Brink was named to the Wooden Award All American Team, the Los Angeles Athletic Club announced on Tuesday.
 
The Wooden Award All American Team is comprised of ten student-athletes who were the top vote-getters in the quest to earn college basketball’s most prestigious honor. The ten-player team, in addition to Brink, consists of: Georgia Amoore (Virginia Tech), Paige Bueckers (Connecticut), Kamilla Cardoso (South Carolina), Caitlin Clark (Iowa), Aaliyah Edwards (Connecticut), Hannah Hidalgo (Notre Dame), Elizabeth Kitley (Virginia Tech), Angel Reese (LSU), and JuJu Watkins (USC).

Brink is one of five finalists for the 2024 John R. Wooden Award presented by Principal Women’s Player of the Year along with Bueckers, Clark, Hidalgo, and Watkins.

 

Brink is one of seven players in Stanford women’s basketball history to be named a Wooden All American and joins Chiney Ogwumike (2013, 2014) and Nneka Ogwumike (2010, 2011, 2012) as the only ones to earn the honor in multiple seasons.

 

In her senior season, Brink was the only player in the country to average 17.0 points, 11.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game and just the ninth major conference player to do that since 1999-2000. She finished with a PER of 45.75, the best mark for a major conference player since 2018-19.

 

Brink’s 424 career blocks are the 14th most in NCAA history and her national-best 3.74 blocks per game average this season were the most by a major conference player since 2020-21. She was fifth nationally in rebounds per game, averaging a team-best 11.9, the third best in program history behind Chiney Ogwumike in both 2012-13 (12.9) and 2013-14 (12.1).

 

Brink’s career totals of 1,892 points, 1,223 rebounds, 226 assists and 424 blocks make her the third player with 1,800 points, 1,200 rebounds, 200 assists and 400 blocks in the past 25 years along with Brittney Griner (Baylor) and Courtney Paris (Oklahoma). This year, she also became the first college player with 500 points, 300 rebounds and 100 blocks in back-to-back seasons since UConn’s Breanna Stewart (2014-16).

 

Voting took place from March 19-26. As insisted upon by Coach Wooden at the Award’s creation 47 years ago, all players were certified by their universities as meeting or exceeding the criteria of the John R. Wooden Award. The 21st annual John R. Wooden Award presented by Principal Women’s Player of the Year will be announced on Monday, April 8th, on…
