INDIANAPOLIS – Graduate student forward Mackenzie Holmes has been named to the 2023-24 United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) All-America second team, announced by the organization on Tuesday.

Holmes earns her second-straight All-America honors from the organization, as she was a first team selection in 2022-23. A unanimous All-Big Ten First Team and All-Big Ten Defensive team selection this season, the Gorham, Maine native leads Indiana (and second in the Big Ten) in scoring with 20.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and shooting a nation’s-best 66.7 percent from the floor in 29 games. She has scored in double figures in 27 of those 29 outings including 16 20-point games and two 30 point efforts along with a team-high six double-doubles. Nationally, Holmes also ranks 14th in field goals made (238) and 22nd in points per game.

The honor is her seventh All-American accolade in her Indiana career, earning two USWBA All-American nods (2023, 2024), two AP All-American selections (2021, 2023), two WBCA All-American honors (2022, 2023) and The Athletic All-American honors (2023).

Holmes and the Hoosiers will be a No. 4 seed in the upcoming 2024 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, which begins on Saturday inside Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. They will face off against 13-seed Fairfield (31-1) at 1:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
