(AP) - Courtney Paris of Oklahoma is the first four-time All-American in women's college basketball, and sophomore Maya Moore of Connecticut is a unanimous selection in her second appearance on The Associated Press' All-America team.

Moore is joined Tuesday on the first team by teammate Renee Montgomery and seniors Angel McCoughtry of Louisville and Kristi Toliver of Maryland.

Auburn forward DeWanna Bonner leads the second team and is joined by Jayne Appel of Stanford, Marissa Coleman of Maryland, Tina Charles of Connecticut and Jantel Lavender of Ohio State.

The teams were selected by the same 45-member national media panel that votes on the weekly Top 25. The balloting was done before the NCAA tournament.
