Five Longhorns earned spots on the 2011 Academic All-Big 12 Women’s Basketball Team, the conference announced Tuesday. Seniors Kathleen Nash and Sarah Lancaster join juniors Yvonne Anderson, Ashleigh Fontenette and Ashley Gayle on the First Team.

It’s the third-straight selection for Nash and the second for Anderson, Fontenette and Gayle. Lancaster was also a three-time Academic All-Big 12 selection during her four years as a member of the women’s tennis team.
