seniorclassawardThirty NCAA women’s basketball student-athletes who excel both on and off the court were selected as candidates today for the 2015-16 Senior CLASS Award in collegiate basketball. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition. An acronym for celebrating loyalty and achievement for staying in school, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

Among the 30 candidates, all are in excellent academic standing with 10 having grade-point averages of 3.5 or higher. The Senior CLASS Award winners will be announced during the Final Four.

The candidate class will be narrowed to 10 finalists in February, and those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot. Ballots will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, coaches and fansl
