CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia women’s basketball senior guard Jocelyn Willoughby (East Orange, N.J.) has been named a regional finalist for the 2020 WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America team, as announced Wednesday (March 25) by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

The selection committee will select the 10-member WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America team from the 52 regional finalists. The 2020 WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America team will be announced Thursday, April 2.

Willoughby finished the season as the ACC scoring leader at 19.2 points per game, making her just the second player in program history to pace the conference in scoring.

She also ranked 10th in the ACC in rebounding at 7.5 per game and was named All-ACC First Team in votes by the Blue Ribbon Panel and the league’s head coaches.

Willoughby, a third-team CoSIDA Academic All-American, was the first player in program history to be the recipient of the 2019-20 Kay Yow Award as the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Willoughby was also named to the 2019-20 All-ACC Academic Team, making her Virginia’s first four-time recipient of that honor.

This is the 22nd time that a Cavalier has earned all-region honors, but the first time since Monica Wright did so in her sophomore through seniors seasons (2008-10).
