All-America teams in women's college basketball were first selected upon the conclusion of the 1974–75 season by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). Through the 1981–82 season no divisional classifications existed – players from all collegiate teams were eligible for the honor. In 1982–83 the NCAA divided the All-America teams into University Division (present day Division I) and College Division (present day Division II and III). Since 1983–84, all three NCAA Divisions have been recognized with their own All-America teams.
