BERKELEY – California junior All-American candidates Brittany Boyd and Reshanda Gray highlight Cal’s selections on the Coaches All-Pac-12 team as announced by the conference office Tuesday.

Boyd and Gray were each named to the All-Pac-12 team with senior Afure Jemerigbe and freshman Courtney Range earning honorable mention status. Boyd was also named to the All-Defensive team with Jemerigbe also earning honorable mention status for the award. Range rounded out the honors as an honorable mention to the All-Freshman team.

California's four combined selections to the All-Pac-12 First Team and Honorable Mention list are the most in the conference.

It is the third honor for Boyd and first for Gray, Jemerigbe and Range. Boyd was an honorable mention and All-Freshman team selection in 2011-12 and a first team selection in 2012-13.

Boyd, a candidate for the Wade Trophy, Wooden Award, Dawn Staley Award and Nancy Lieberman Award this season, is averaging 14.7 points, 6.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.9 steals per game for the Golden Bears. She leads the Pac-12 in steals and assists while ranking 12th in the NCAA in steals per game. In her last game, Boyd registered just the second triple-double in California history and the 18th in Pac-12 history when she put up 13 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists against Washington State. She concludes the regular season as one of just three players in the country averaging at least 14 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists.

Gray leads the team with her 17.3 points and 9.1 rebounds per game and has become a double-double machine with her 11 double-doubles in 18 Pac-12 games this season. Gray, the first Golden Bear to average at least 17 points per game in the regular season since Alexis Gray-Lawson’s 18 points per contest in the 2009-10 season, ranks fifth in the NCAA with her .604 field goal percentage. Her 43 points scored against Washington State are the most by a Pac-12 player this season as well as the most by a post player in the country this season.

Jemerigbe earned her first honorable mention honor for All-Pac-12 and All-Defensive Team after a strong season in which she was Cal’s third-leading scorer at 11.8 points per game. The senior added 26 steals and 10 blocks and provided senior leadership on the court while playing the second-most minutes on the team at 32.8 per game.

Range ended her freshman regular season campaign averaging 5.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. Her 18 blocked shots are a team high. As an honorable mention for both the All-Pac-12 team and the All-Freshman team, she becomes the fifth Golden Bear to be recognized on both lists in the same season, joining Brittany Boyd (2011-12), DeNesha Stallworth (2009-10), Devanei Hampton (2005-06) and Alexis Gray-Lawson (2005-06).

California begins Pac-12 Tournament play this weekend at KeyArena in Seattle. The Bears will take on either Washington State or Oregon in Friday’s quarterfinal at 6 p.m.
