CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.--DeMya Walker, the leading scorer and rebounder on the 1997-98 University of Virginia women's basketball team, is one of 48 finalists for the 1998 Division I Kodak Women's All-America Basketball Team.
The 48 finalists will be considered for selection to the 10-member Kodak All-America team. The finalists were selected by members of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) in each of the association's eight districts.
The Division I Kodak All-America Selection Committee will meet March 22-23 in Kansas City, Mo., site of the 1998 WBCA National Convention and the NCAA Division I Women's Final Four, to select the All-America team. The 38 finalists who are not selected to the All-America team will be recognized as Kodak Honorable Mention All-Americans.
