Six Added to Wade Watch List at Midseason Point

POSTED: February 10, 2021 -- 12:49 p.m. CT

The WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches' All-America Selection Committee has added six additional student-athletes to the "Wade Watch" list of candidates for the 2021 Wade Trophy, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association announced Wednesday.

Joining the preseason list of 33 Wade Trophy hopefuls are Kierstan Bell of Florida Gulf Coast, Grace Berger of Indiana, Dyasia Fair of Buffalo, Anastasia Hayes of Middle Tennessee, Haley Jones of Stanford, and Natasha Mack of Oklahoma State.

The Wade Trophy — now in its 44th year — is the oldest and most prestigious national player of the year award in women's college basketball. The award is named in honor of the late, legendary Delta State University head coach Lily Margaret Wade, who won three consecutive national championships with the Lady Statesmen. First awarded in 1978 by the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), now known as SHAPE America, the Wade Trophy has been presented to the WBCA NCAA Division I National Player of the Year since 2001.

The WBCA will announce the four finalists for the honor in mid-March. The winner of the 2021 Wade Trophy will be announced in April.
