LOS ANGELES -- Oklahoma's Courtney Paris and Connecticut teammates Maya Moore and Renee Montgomery are among five players on the John R. Wooden women's All-American team.

Joining them Thursday were Louisville's Angel McCoughtry and Maryland's Kristi Toliver. Paris will lead Oklahoma against McCoughtry's team in the national semifinals Sunday. Moore and Montgomery lead the Huskies against Stanford in the other semifinal in St. Louis.

Paris became the first woman named to the Wooden All-American team four times. Moore was selected last year as a freshman. She and Montgomery are the first players from the same school to be chosen.

A national panel of more than 300 sports media and college basketball experts had until Monday to cast their votes.
