    NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame senior Niele Ivey (St. Louis, Mo.) has been selected to the 13-member 2000 BIG EAST Women's Basketball All-Star Team which will compete on a six-game competitive tour of Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia on May 26-June 4.

    Ivey, a second-team all-BIG EAST selection, headlines the 13-member squad which is comprised of one representative from each league school, and features one senior, one junior, five sophomores and six freshmen.

    The 5-6 guard, who averaged 11.2 points as the team's third-leading scorer and led the Irish in assists (194), will return for a fifth season with Notre Dame in 2000-20001 after playing in just five game because of an injury during the 1996-97 campaign. Ivey was the BIG EAST leader in steals (2.97) and was second in assists (6.06) as she led the Irish to a second-place finish in the league's regular-season standings with a 15-1 record.

    This marks the 11th consecutive year that the BIG EAST Conference is sending a women's basketball all-star squad abroad. West Virginia University head coach Alexis Basil will direct the team.

    Notre Dame, which made a fifth consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament, finished the 1990-2000 season with a 27-5 record. The .844 winning percentage is the best in school history and the 27 wins are the second most by an Irish squad.

    The all-stars will play the top club teams in Western Canada during their tour, including Simon Fraser All-Stars.
