ATLANTA, Ga. – Duke University senior Tricia Liston has been named to the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-Region II squad Tuesday, following a vote of Division I head coaches.  All region selections will now move to the ballot for the prestigious 10-member WBCA Division I Coaches’ All-America Team, which will be announced at the NCAA Final Four.

Other Region II selections included Natasha Howard (Florida State), Alyssa Thomas (Maryland), Markeisha Gatling (N.C. State), Kayla McBride (Notre Dame), Jewell Loyd (Notre Dame) and Dearica Hamby (Wake Forest).

Liston, who is out of River Forest, Ill., had a breakout season in her final year with the Blue Devils averaging a team-high 17.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists.  She collected 16 games with 20 or more points and her 48.1 three-point field goal percentage ranked second nationally.  The 6-1 guard hit 52.5 percent of her field goals and 85.2 percent from the charity stripe on the season.

On the season, Liston drained a school-record 87 three-pointers and concluded her outstanding career with a school-record 252 treys, which also ranks tied seventh on the ACC all-time charts.  She was a First Team All-ACC selection by both the Blue Ribbon Panel and the league head coaches, while also earning All-ACC Tournament First Team accolades and being a finalist for the John R. Wooden Award.  Liston was a midseason candidate for the Naismith and Wade Watch list.

Duke concluded its season on Monday in the NCAA Second Round with a 74-65 loss to 23rd-ranked DePaul.  It snapped a four-year streak of advancing to the NCAA Elite Eight for the Blue Devils.
