Malone became the school's all-time steals leader Feb. 7 and is second in the Big Ten with 2.7 steals per game. She's a former league Defensive Player of the Year.
Rayburn, who was a third-team pick by media, leads Purdue with 14.6 points per game and is second in steals (41) and assists (58). She was the league's Sixth Player of the Year and a member of the All-Freshman team last season.
