Oklahoma’s Aaryn Ellenberg was named to the five-member Preseason All-Big 12 Women’s Basketball Team, the conference office announced Wednesday.

Joining Ellenberg and Sims on the preseason team are Hallie Christofferson of Iowa State, Imani McGee-Stafford of Texas and Asya Bussie of West Virginia.
