  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers junior Cappie Pondexter (Chicago, IL) has been named a member of the Associated Press Women’s Basketball All-America Third Team, the group has announced.

    Pondexter, a 5-9 guard, averaged 17.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.8 steals per game for the Scarlet Knights this season, and has been named a finalist for three national player-of-the-year awards (Wooden Women’s Award, State Farm Wade Trophy and Naismith) as well as this year’s Nancy Lieberman Award (top point guard). Pondexter also has been named to the 2004 Kodak/Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-Region 1 Team, was unanimously selected to this year’s All-BIG EAST First Team, and earned a spot on the BIG EAST All-Tournament Team after averaging a tourney-best 23.3 points per game in leading RU to a runner-up finish. An honorable mention All-America selection by Kodak/WBCA last season, she twice was named the BIG EAST Conference Co-Player of the Week this winter, and she earned a spot on the Preseason WNIT All-Tournament Team.

    Pondexter, an honorable mention Associated Press All-American last year, is the third Scarlet Knight to earn AP All-America honors (Shawnetta Stewart – 2000; Tasha Pointer – 2000, 2001) and the second to earn multiple awards. Pondexter is the first Knight to be named to the third team, as Stewart and Pointer were both honorable mention picks.

    The Scarlet Knights (21-12, 10-6 BIG EAST) advanced to their sixth NCAA Championship in the last seven years, and finished as the runners-up at the 2004 BIG EAST Championship.
