Today UConn Sr. All-American F Maya Moore was named one of the ten finalists for the 2011 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award for women's college 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. Former UConn great Sue Bird, the only other Husky to take home the honor, won the inaugural Senior Class Award in 2002. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Lowe's 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. The finalists were chosen by a media committee from the list of 30 candidates announced in November. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to determine the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote once daily for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award here or on the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award Facebook fan page through March 20. Fan votes will be combined with media and coaches votes to determine the winner. Lowe's, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, will announce the winner at the Final Four in Indianapolis.
