TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Associated Press 1999-2000 All-Atlantic

ACC All-Defensive Team, as chosen by the league coaches.
It is the second such honor for Coleman, a 6-0 senior forward from
Macon, Ga. Coleman was also a second team choice as a sophomore, after
receiving ACC All-Freshman Team honors in 1997. She currently ranks fourth
in the league in scoring at 15.6 points per game, 3rd in overall field goal

in nine games.
Despite missing the first five games of the season with a broken
pinky, Wyckoff earned third team honors for the second straight year and
was chosen as one of the top five defensive teams in the league. Wyckoff,
a junior who hails from West Chester, Ohio, ranks among the ACC leaders in
five statistical categories, including leading the ACC in blocks per game.
Third on the team in scoring at 11.2 points and first in rebounding at 7.1
rebounds per game, Wyckoff scored in double figures 12 times.
Point guard April Traylor, a sophomore from Martinsville, Ind.,
received honorable mention status. An ACC All-Freshman team member as a
rookie, Traylor averaged 12.7 points and a league-leading 5.0 assists while
playing a new position this season. She ranks among the ACC leaders in
scoring, assists and is second in steals per game.
The Seminoles will head to Greensboro on Thursday morning and will
meet Maryland in the first game of the ACC Tournament on Friday, March 3rd
at 6 p.m.
