List of Women's Basketball Academic All-America Team Members of the Year

List of Women's Basketball Academic All-America Team Members of the Year is a list of the annual selection by the College Sports Information Directors of America and its Academic All-America sponsor of the individual athlete selected as the most outstanding of the annual Women's Basketball Academic All-America selections. From 1996 through 2011, one winner each was chosen from both the College and University Divisions for all twelve Academic All-America teams, including football; the Academic All-America program recognizes combined athletic and academic excellence of the nation's top student-athletes. The University Division team included eligible participants from National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I member schools, while the College Division team included scholar-athletes from all of the following: NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, Canadian universities and colleges and two-year schools. Beginning in 2012, COSIDA revamped its award structure.

The University Division was renamed "Division I". Since NCAA Divisions II and III have had their own separate All-Americans; the College Division consisted only of non-NCAA institutions through the 2017–18 school year, after which it was replaced by an NAIA division restricted to members of that governing body. Each team selects Academic All-District honorees in eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. First team All-District honorees make the All-America team ballots. All twelve Academic All-American teams have one Academic All-American of the Year for each division. One of these twelve sport-by-sport Academic All-American of the year is selected as the Academic All-America Team Members of the Year for each division; the most recent women's basketball player to have earned the all-sports honor is Lauren Battista of Bentley University in Massachusetts, winner of the 2014 Division II award. All winners are Americans. Names in bold were winners of the all-sports Academic All-America Award.

Naviglio di Bereguardo

Situated in Lombardy, the Naviglio di Bereguardo was a navigable canal, part of the Navigli system. It leaves the Naviglio Grande at Abbiategrasso. Construction began in the first half of the 15th century by order of Francesco Sforza. Intended for irrigation, 24 locks were built to allow for boats to move along it; the engineer for this task was Bertola da Novate, who had 18 pound locks constructed along the canal system operated by Milan. Despite the pound locks, at Bereguardo the canal terminated just short of a connection with the River Ticino, so the boats had to be dragged over land the short distance; the canal fell into disuse in the 19th century with the opening of the grander Naviglio Pavese and today it is only used for irrigation purposes
