Villa Maria graduate and Notre Dame basketball player Kayla McBride was named to the all-Big East Conference first team today.

McBride, a 5-foot 11-inch junior guard, was one of 12 first-team honorees and one of three Notre Dame players to make the team. She was joined by senior guard Skylar Diggins and junior forward Natalie Achonwa.

McBride ranks second on the team with an average of 15.3 points per game. She is coming off a career-high 26 points in Notre Dame’s 96-87 triple-overtime victory over UConn, which completed the Fighting Irish’s 16-0 season in the Big East.

She has been named to the Watch Lists for both the Wooden Award and the Naismith Award.
