LSU's Augustus unanimous preseason All-America pick
Already hard enough to guard, Seimone Augustus is about to make life even more taxing for defenders.
The LSU star has been working on her 3-point shot and she's getting more confident in taking it, adding yet another dimension to an impressive array of offensive skills that has dazzled onlookers from the day she first put on a Tigers uniform.
Augustus will start her senior season as the only unanimous selection on The Associated Press preseason All-America team, no surprise after she was an overwhelming choice as the national player of the year last season.
"A lot of good young players have attributes," Ohio State coach Jim Foster said. "Seimone has a game."
Joining Augustus on The AP team, chosen by a 46-member national media panel, were Ohio State's Jessica Davenport, Duke's Monique Currie, Baylor's Sophia Young and Rutgers' Cappie Pondexter.
Augustus, Currie and Davenport were first-team All-America picks at the end of last season. Young made the second team.
