Naismith Award Watch List

Four standouts from the UConn women’s basketball team earned spots on the 2013-14 Naismith Award Early Season Watch List, as announced by the Atlanta Tipoff Club today. UConn All-Americans Sr. C Stefanie Dolson, Sr. G Bria Hartley, and Jr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis along with All-American candidate So. F Breanna Stewart all received recognition, making UConn the most represented school on the list along with Duke. The Naismith Trophy presented by AT&T is awarded annually to the men’s and women’s college basketball players of the year. The voting academy bases its criteria on player performance throughout the season. The Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors will narrow the 50 pre-season watch list down to a midseason team comprised of 30 candidates, which will be announced in February. From there, four finalists will be selected to the final ballot in March. The Naismith Award winner will be announced on April 7, 2014.
