WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - California senior guard Courtney Johnson has been named to the 10-member All-Pac-10 team Monday as selected by the conference's 10 head coaches. Johnson's senior backcourt mate Kenya Corley earned honorable mention all-conference recognition, while freshman guard Latasha O'Keith was selected honorable mention all-freshman.

Johnson is the Golden Bears first non-honorable mention All-Pac-10 honoree since Eliza Sokolowska was selected following the 1994-95 season. An honorable mention All-Pac-10 pick as a junior, Johnson helped guide California to a 12-16 record, a tie for sixth place in the Pac-10 (8-10) and the team's most conference victories since 1992-93.

The Antioch, Calif., native leads the Pac-10 in steals (3.18 spg) and ranks among the league's statistical leaders in scoring (7th, 15.2 ppg), assists (8th, 3.54 apg) and assist-turnover ratio (9th, 0.97). Her 89 steals this year stands fourth in Cal's individual season record books. Her career-best 15.2 ppg average is the best by a Cal player since Patrycja Czepiec averaged 15.9 ppg in 1996-97. She tied for the second-best scoring mark in the conference this year with a career-high 34 points in Cal's 82-73 win at Stanford (Feb. 16).

Johnson, a three-year captain, concluded her California career ranked 12th in school history with 1077 points and second in school and Pac-10 history with 286 steals. She also stands among the Bears career leaders for free throws made (seventh, 271), free throws attempted (9th, 388), three-pointers made (9th, 50) and three-pointers attempted (7th, 233).

Corley earned honorable mention All-Pac-10 recognition for her career year with the Bears. The Lancaster, Calif., product is second on the Bears and 12th in the conference with a career-best 12.8 ppg. She also ranks ninth in the league for free throw percentage at 72.6 percent. Arguably the most athletic player in the Pac-10, Corley led the Bears in scoring in eight games, including a career-high 25 points in Cal's 58-57 win at UCLA (Feb. 4).

O'Keith's selection as an honorable mention Pac-10 All-Freshman pick follows Cal's Amber White's selection last season. O'Keith, who hails from Carson, Calif., averaged 3.8 ppg, 1.8 rpg and 1.0 spg for the Bears. She posted a career-best 13 points to help propel the Bears to a 79-72 win at Oregon State (Jan. 13). She earned her first collegiate start in Cal's final game of the season at Arizona.
