WBCA announces preseason 2021 Wade Trophy Watch List

The WBCA announced the preseason watch list for the 2021 Wade Trophy, an award presented to the best player in college women’s basketball. The Wade Trophy, in its 44th year, is the oldest national player of the year award in college women’s basketball and named in honor of the late, legendary Delta State University head coach Lily Margaret Wade. The watch list of candidates for the award includes players selected by the WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America Selection Committee. The committee will review the list midseason to determine if additional players will be added based on their play during the first half of the 2020-21 season.
