NORMAN, Okla. – Oklahoma guard Danielle Robinson is now a two-time All-American after receiving her second such honor Tuesday.

Robinson was listed to the Associated Press All-American Women's Basketball Second Team, receiving 12 of 39 possible votes, the sixth largest overall tally from the media panel.

This season the senior point guard led the Sooners to a third consecutive Sweeet 16 appearance with 18.3 points, 5.1 assists and 2.5 steals per game.

Also this year, Robinson became one of just four women's in college basketball history to total 2,000 points, 700 assists and 300 steals in a career.

UConn's Maya Moore was a unanimous choice to the five-member first team. She is joined by Baylor's Brittney Griner, Ohio State's Jantel Lavender, Texas A&M's Danielle Adams and Stanford's Jeanette Pohlen.

Moore matched former Sooner Courtney Paris feat as the only four-time members of the AP All-America First Team.

Robinson is joined on the second team by Xavier's Amber Harris, Gonzaga's Courtney Vandersloot, Stanford's Nnemkadi Ogwumike and Duke's Jasmine Thomas.

Robinson was an AP All-America Third Team member in 2010 and honorable mention in 2009.
