Augustus, a Baton Rouge native, was the consensus National Player of the Year last season after posting 20.1 points and 4.6 rebounds per game to lead LSU to a 33-3 record and a return trip to the NCAA Final Four.
She led this year's five-member preseason team that included Ohio State's Jessica Davenport, Duke's Monique Curry, Baylor's Sophia Young and Rutgers' Cappie Pondexter.
So far this year Augustus has led LSU to a pair of exhibition victories by averaging 27.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per game, while shooting 65.6 percent shooting from the floor.
