• Delaware guard/forward Elena Delle Donne: Delle Donne led the nation in scoring as a junior (28.1 points per game) and was second as a senior (25.8). She also averaged better than eight rebounds per game.

• Notre Dame guard Skylar Diggins: A four-time All-America and two-time Big East Conference player of the year, Diggins led Notre Dame to three consecutive Final Fours and finished her career No. 1 in program history in points and steals.
