Oklahoma State’s Brittney Martin earned third-team All-America status today with the announcement of the Associated Press Women’s Basketball All-America Team.

With the distinction, Martin became the first Cowgirl to be named to one of the organization’s three teams since Andrea Riley earned second-team All-America status following the 2009-10 season. Tiffany Bias (2013, 2014) and Toni Young (2013) earned honorable mention recognition during their time at OSU.

Earlier this year, the Syracuse, Utah native became the first Cowgirl to be named the Big 12 Player of the Year and was also the first OSU player named the league's defensive player of the year. Additionally, she was tabbed as a Wade Trophy finalist by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

On five occasions, she was named Big 12 Player of the Week and was named the College Sports Madness Big 12 Player of the Week four times. Martin was also a first-team Academic All-Big 12 pick this season.

A unanimous all-league pick for the second year in a row, Martin was named to the league's all-defensive squad for the second consecutive season.

Martin is on pace to become the first player in Big 12 history to finish as its leader in scoring, rebounding and steals in the same season. The senior averaged 20.4 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest and finished the year with 20 double-doubles.
