Women’s hoops fans certainly have their opinions on who they believe the best point guard in the country is.
The official award denoting that honor will be presented at this year’s NCAA Women’s Final Four in New Orleans, Louisiana as part of the Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association convention.
The WBCA and the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame released the names of ten finalists today. Those ten finalists are Sabrina Ionescu (Oregon), Crystal Dangerfield (UConn), Te’a Cooper (Baylor), Destiny Slocum (Oregon State), Kelly Campbell (DePaul), Tyasha Harris (South Carolina), Stella Johnson (Rider), Japreece Dean (UCLA), Alecia “Sug” Sutton (Texas) and Ali Patberg (Indiana).

Ionescu is already a two-time recipient of the award and would join Sue Bird as the only two guards to claim the award three times. The last UConn player to win the award was Moriah Jefferson four years ago. Cooper winning would mark the first Baylor player to take home the award since Odyssey Sims in the 2013-14 season.
