Cowgirls Bias and Young All-American Honorable Mentions

STILLWATER, Okla. — Oklahoma State's women's basketball team was represented by a pair of players on the Associated Press' All-America Team with senior Toni Young and junior Tiffany Bias earning honorable mention honors.

Young and Bias are the first Cowgirls to be honored by the Associated Press since Andrea Riley earned second-team honors in 2010. The duo helped OSU to a 22-11 mark and the school's first NCAA berth since 2010.

A native of Del City, Okla., Young was a unanimous first-team All-Big 12 pick as well as a WBCA All-Region 5 selection this year. The MVP at this year's Surf `N Slam Classic, she started all 33 of the Cowgirls' games and was the squad's leading scorer (16.0 ppg) and rebounder (10.1 rpg). Young also finished the year with a team-best 16 double-doubles.

On two occasions she was named the Big 12 Player of the Week and also became the first player in school history to record 1,000 points, 800 rebounds and 100 blocks during her career. Young finished her career ranked among the school's top 10 in scoring, rebounding blocked shots, games played, field-goal percentage and double-doubles.

Bias also started all 33 of the squad's games and finished the year with a team-best 216 assists. The Andover, Kan., native played all 40 minutes in 11 of OSU's final 16 games and sat out just over four minutes combined during that stretch. Bias was named a second-team all-conference selection for the second year in a row and was named to the all-tournament team at the Surf `N Slam Classic.

She also became the 20th Cowgirl to eclipse the 1,000-point mark for her career and moved into third place on the school's all-time assist chart.
