Since the Kodak All-America team was first established in 1975, just nine freshmen have been named to the 10-member squad.

Last season, Stanford's Candice Wiggins became the first rookie since 2000 to earn the honor, but it remains a rare distinction for first-year players.

Only time will tell if either Oklahoma's true freshman, Courtney Paris, or Tennessee redshirt freshman Candace Parker will join the elite group. (Last season marked the first time since 1987 that the Kodak All-America team did not include a player from either Tennessee or Connecticut.) But here's how their numbers stack up against other freshmen honorees (and for a year-by-year look at the Kodak selections, click here):
