ATLANTA – Kansas senior Angel Goodrich was one of 30 NCAA Division I women’s basketball student-athletes to be under consideration for the Naismith Women’s College Player of the Year award, as announced by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors Wednesday.
The top-30 candidates were selected based on player performances during this year’s college basketball season. Goodrich, who ranks first in the Big 12 Conference in steals per game (3.0) and third in assists per contest (6.7), is also a finalist for the Lieberman Award, Wade Trophy, Ann Meyers Drysdale Award and Wooden Award. Goodrich is second on the Kansas’ squad in scoring with 14.3 points per game.
In late March, the Naismith Trophy voting academy will narrow down the pack to four finalists. The Naismith Women’s College Player of the Year, presented by AT&T, will be awarded to one female athlete on April 8, 2013, in New Orleans, La.
