STARKVILLE, Miss. (MSU Athletics/WTVA) - Teaira McCowan was named a First Team All-American by the Associated Press on Monday, bringing her career total to five All-American selections by various outlets. Jazzmun Holmes and Anriel Howard were honorable mention selections.

The Brenham, Texas, native was a third team selection last year, and her selection this year marks back-to-back seasons that a Bulldog has collected first team honors (Victoria Vivians – 2018).

McCowan averaged 18.4 points and 13.5 rebounds per game this season while shooting 66.2 percent from the field. Her percentage blew away the previous MSU single-season record of 60.9 percent set by Erica Simmons in the 1992-93 campaign.

She averaged 30.0 minutes per game while starting every contest. McCowan posted 31 double-doubles, breaking her own MSU single-season record, and finished her career with 70. She also holds MSU’s career record for games played (149) and is a part of the winningest class in school history (132).

The senior was also named an All-American by ESPNW this year and earned recognition from the Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association, AP and ESPNW last year as well.

Holmes led the nation in assist/turnover ratio this year (4.81) while dishing 202 assists, shattering State’s previous single-season record. She finished her career in second in Bulldog history with 476 assists.

Howard averaged 16.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per game while collecting a dozen double-doubles and scoring in double figures 30 times. She closed her career as the No. 6 active rebounder in the nation with 1,303 career boards.
