From the WBCA:

The Wade Trophy Committee, along with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and SHAPE America – the Society of Health and Physical Educators, announced the 12 finalists in contention for The Wade Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation’s most outstanding NCAA Division I women’s basketball player.

The candidates were selected by a vote of committee members consisting of leading basketball coaches, journalists and administrators. The committee will select the winner of The Wade Trophy from among these 12 finalists who also are named to the 10-member WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America Team when it is chosen in April.  The winner will be announced during the WBCA Awards Show, which will be held at 5:30 p.m. ET Monday, April 6, in the Grand Ballroom at the Tampa Marriott Waterside.  The event is part of the WBCA National Convention and is held in conjunction with the NCAA Women’s Final Four.

“The WBCA congratulates these outstanding student-athletes for being named finalists for women’s basketball’s highest honor, the Wade Trophy,” said WBCA Executive Director Danielle Donehew.  “These finalists have demonstrated excellence on the basketball court, in addition to a commitment to academics, sportsmanship, and ethical conduct.  They captivated national audiences with their talent throughout the season and have left their mark on our game.  We celebrate these individuals, their teams, and coaches.”
