GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Top-seeded Notre Dame and No. 2 seed Florida State each placed two players on the all-Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball team.

The 10-player first team was announced Tuesday following a vote of school representatives and media members.

Forward Brianna Turner and guard Lindsay Allen helped the third-ranked Fighting Irish (27-3) make it four No. 1 seeds in four seasons in the ACC, which begins its conference tournament Wednesday in Conway, South Carolina.

The eighth-ranked Seminoles (25-5) placed forward Shakayla Thomas and guard Leticia Romero on the first team.

Also on the first team were Duke's Lexie Brown and Rebecca Greenwell, Louisville's Asia Durr and Myisha Hines-Allen and the league's top two scorers, Alexis Peterson and Brittney Sykes, both of Syracuse.
