Sharnée Zoll, Virginia, 5-7, senior, guard
On track to break Dawn Staley's career assists record, Zoll led the ACC last season with 209 dishes.

She has steeled her steady hand against the likes of Latta and Harding in the ACC and is a cool customer. -- Beth Mowins
Jolene Anderson, Wisconsin, 5-7, senior, guard
The fastest Wisconsin player, male or female, to 1,000 points, she led her team in points, steals, rebounds and 3-pointers.

Seniors still matter in women's basketball, and Anderson is primed to lead an experienced Wisconsin team. -- Graham Hays
Briann January, Arizona State, 5-8, junior, guard
In 2006-07, she averaged 10.2 ppg, 4.0 apg and shot 44 percent as ASU won a school-record 31 games and reached its first Elite Eight.

January is more than just the best of the rest in an off year for point guards. She has range on her shot, speed off the dribble and the vision to produce nearly twice as many assists as turnovers. -- Graham Hays
Shavonte Zellous, Pittsburgh, 5-10, junior, guard
She nearly tripled her scoring average last season en route to Big East Most Improved Player honors -- and Pitt's first NCAA Tournament berth.

She was one of the most improved scorers in the nation last year. Zellous has 3-point range and an ability to get to the basket off the bounce. -- Beth Mowins
Sylvia Fowles, LSU, 6-6, senior, center
The Kodak All-American last season became the first player in SEC history to tally a double-double in every conference game.

When she puts her mind to dominating, that's exactly what she does on both ends of the court. -- Mechelle Voepel
