Release from the WBCA

The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) today announced the 2014-15 “Wade Watch” list of candidates for the prestigious award.  California, Connecticut, South Carolina and Tennessee each have two players on the list.

Now in its 38th year, The Wade Trophy is named in honor of the late, legendary Delta State University coach, Lily Margaret Wade.  During her six seasons as head coach, Wade won three consecutive national championships with the Lady Statesmen and recorded a career record of 157-23.

Regarded as “The Heisman of Women’s Basketball,” The Wade Trophy is presented annually to the WBCA NCAA Division I Player of the Year by SHAPE America – the Society of Health and Physical Educators and the WBCA.  The 25-member list is made up of top NCAA Division I student-athletes who best embody the spirit of Lily Margaret Wade according to the following criteria: game and season statistics, leadership, character, effect on their team and overall playing ability.

Here is the list of candidates for the 2015 Wade Trophy in alphabetical order:
