Vivian Gray tabbed WBCA All-America honorable mention selection

MINNEAPOLIS – Texas Tech senior Vivian Gray was named a Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-America selection, the organization announced Thursday afternoon.

A native of Argyle, Gray closed her Lady Raider career by receiving multiple accolades including First Team All-Big 12 honors, CoSIDA Academic All-America honors and the aforementioned WBCA All-American distinction.

When Gray was named a First Team All-Big 12 selection, she became just the fourth women’s basketball player in Big 12 history to be named a four-time All Big-12 First Team selection.

This season, Gray averaged a team-best 20.2 points and 5.3 rebounds. The combo-guard also contributed 51 assists, 45 steals and 25 blocks. Gray’s 45 steals and 25 blocks were the most by a Lady Raider this season.

Other season highlights included Gray reaching both the 2,000-point mark for her DI career and the 2,500-point mark for her entire career. The Texan began her basketball career at the D-II level playing for Fort Lewis College.

One of the nation’s premier scorers, Gray recorded 20 games with at least 10 points this season and scored at least 20 points in 14 contests. The senior closed her career with an astounding 101 games with at least 10 points, 60 games with 20 points or more and seven games with 30 points or more.

Gray saved some of her best basketball this season for the biggest games, as the senior contributed 10 of her 14 20-point games against teams that appeared in the 2022 NCAA Tournament field, including an impressive 35-point performance in Texas Tech’s victory at No . 15 Oklahoma.

The honor marks the 28th All-America selection in Lady Raider history.

Gray will now turn her attention to the 2022 WNBA Draft which is scheduled for April 11 on ESPN.
