NEW YORK (AP) - A'ja Wilson has earned Associated Press All-America team honors for a third time.

South Carolina's senior center was a unanimous choice Monday from the 32-member media panel that votes on the AP Top 25 poll each week. She was joined on the All-America team by UConn's Katie Lou Samuelson, Oregon's Sabrina Ionescu, Louisville's Asia Durr and Mississippi State's Victoria Vivians. Voting was done before the NCAA Tournament.

Wilson is the seventh player to be a three-time All-American. Baylor's Brittney Griner, Tennessee's Chamique Holdsclaw, Duke's Alana Beard, Oklahoma's Courtney Paris and UConn's Breanna Stewart and Maya Moore are the only other players to earn first-team honors at least three times. Paris and Moore were All-Americans all four years.

Wilson says it's amazing to be honored three times like those six other players.
