Three North Carolina women's basketball players were named to Full Court's Freshman All-America teams.

Diamond DeShields was placed on the first team, Allisha Gray landed on the second team and Stephanie Mavunga was an honorable mention selection.

Gray, a member of the ACC All-Freshman team, was second on the team in scoring at 13.9 points per game. The Sandersville, Ga., native ranked third among ACC freshmen in scoring, while her 41.8 percent shooting from distance is the second best mark in Tar Heel history.

Mavunga, from Indianapolis, ranked first among ACC freshmen and seventh nationally among Division I first-year players with 8.2 rebounds per game. Her 2.4 blocks per game was the second best figure in the ACC this season, and fifth nationally among freshmen. Mavunga also contributed 10.7 points per game, while posting 12 double-doubles, the fifth most in the conference.
