TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (Seminoles.com) – Two Seminoles in senior forward Shakayla Thomas and redshirt senior shooting guard Imani Wright added to Florida State Women’s Basketball’s rich history on Monday, being recognized as Associated Press Women’s Honorable Mention All-Americans.
Thomas joins point guard Leticia Romero as the program’s two three-time All-Americans. Thomas earned All-America honors from the AP in 2017 as well as the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association in 2016 in addition to her 2018 selection.
For Wright, she earns her first All-America honor as a collegiate athlete and becomes the 17th Seminole to receive an All-America accolade. For the fourth consecutive year, multiple Seminoles have been chosen as All-Americans.
Thomas finishes her Seminole career as one of the most outstanding players in program history. The Sylacauga, Ala., native is a finalist for the Cheryl Miller Award, given to the nation’s best small forward. Thomas ended her senior season with season highs in points per game (17.8), total points (586), rebounds per game (6.7), total rebounds (220) and total field goals made (251).
From a career perspective, Thomas ranks second all-time at FSU with 1,971 points and second in field goals made with 851. She totaled 28 20-point games in her career, 106 games with double-figure points and 16 double-doubles.
Wright’s first-ever All-America season was certainly her best. Her 103 3-point field goals made shattered the previous school record of 78 by point guard Courtney Ward in the 2010-11 season. The Hooks, Texas, native averaged 16.3 points this past year, along with shooting 38.3 percent from downtown and 40.7 percent overall.
Wright’s 171 career 3-point field goals at FSU in just two seasons ranks fourth in program history. As a redshirt senior, she tallied 29 games with 10+ points, 11 20-point games and had five games with 5+ 3-point field goals made.
