Three Huskies On USBWA Award List

by Categorized: UConn women's basketball Date:

Stefanie Dolson, Kelly Faris and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis were selected to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association’s 2013 Ann Meyers Drysdale Award Midseason Watch List Tuesday afternoon.

Members of the association’s board of directors chose the players to be included on the list as contenders for the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award.

The award is to be presented to the women’s national player of the year by its namesake at the USBWA women’s awards press conference on April 7 in the interview room of the New Orleans Arena, 3:30 p.m. local time prior to the start of the NCAA Women’s Final Four semifinals, which is a change from the morning breakfast in past seasons.

Connecticut has the highest number of student-athletes on the list with three and the Big East leads all conferences with five as Syracuse’s Kayla Alexander and Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins join the three Huskies.

  1. Baylor Lady Bears

    Brittney Griner in a landslide. Baylor scored 50 second half points against UConn. Griner scored 21 in the 2nd half and dished out several assists, all while 3 UConn players converged on her. Ultimate game changer. Top 10 greatest ever.

    1. Winning IS Fundamental

      Interesting old facts about a game long played. Points and being big aren’t the only criteria for the award. Don’t be surprised if BG doesn’t win.
      Win lose or Draw it is an honor for us Fans to have 3 Uconn players on the “watch” list of the award.
      If any of the other players on the list get the award Uconn fans will all say Congratulations, because we are Fans not bigots.
