OSU's Miller Named National Freshman of the Week
December 12, 2017

St. Louis – Oklahoma State guard Braxtin Miller was tabbed the Ann Meyers Drysdale Women’s National Freshman of the Week, as awarded by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) on Tuesday.

Miller, a 5-10 guard from Centerville, Ohio, scored 19 points, shot 8-for-10 from the line, grabbed four rebounds, dealt two assists and had two steals playing all but two of the minutes in the 87-72 upset of then-No. 7 UCLA in Oklahoma State’s lone game played last week.

Since the 1987-88 season, the USBWA has named a women’s National Player of the Year. For the 2012-13 season, the national and weekly player award has been named for Hall of Famer and former UCLA All-American Ann Meyers Drysdale. At the conclusion of the regular season, the USBWA will name finalists for the award, which is voted on by the entire membership of the USBWA. The winner of the 2018 Ann Meyers Drysdale National Player of the Year will be announced and presented at the USBWA’s annual awards event in Columbus, Ohio, site of the 2018 NCAA Women’s Final Four.

The U.S. Basketball Writers Association was formed in 1956 at the urging of then-NCAA Executive Director Walter Byers. With some 900 members worldwide, it is one of the most influential organizations in college basketball. It has selected a women's All-America team since the 1996-97 season.
