McCray named to WNIT All-Time Top 20
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Danielle McCray left her mark on Kansas women’s basketball during her four-year career and added to her legacy this week after being named to the WNIT All-Time Top-20 Players.
With the 20th WNIT championship game set for April 1, tournament officials announced the top-20 players to appear in the WNIT’s history. McCray made the top-20 list after the Jayhawks’ run to the championship game in 2009.
During the 2009 postseason, McCray set the all-time scoring record in the WNIT with 147 points. McCray scored a game-high 24 points in the WNIT finale against South Florida. In front of a record-breaking crowd of 16,113, Kansas was edged by the Bulls, 75-71, and finished as the WNIT runner-up.
McCray led Kansas to nine victories in its last 12 games of the 2008-09 season, including wins over Top-25-ranked teams No. 5 Baylor and No. 22 Iowa State. An All-Big 12 First Team selection, McCray scored 20 or more points in 23 of her 36 outings in 2008-09. She also scored 30 or more points on six occasions.
At the conclusion of the 2008-09 season, McCray earned All-America Honorable Mention honors by the Associated Press and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). She was also selected to play for USA Basketball at the World University Games, helping the United State to a gold medal.
A three-time All-Big 12 selection, McCray earned four Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week accolades and was a member of the 2009 WNIT All-Tournament team.
