Texas junior Sug Sutton has been named one of 10 candidates for the 2019 Nancy Lieberman Award, announced by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and Women’s Basketball Coaches Association. The award recognizes the top point guard in women’s NCAA Division I college basketball.
This prestigious award, now in its 20th year, is presented to one player who exhibits the floor leadership, play-making and ball-handling skills of Class of 1996 Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman.
The Big 12 has had two previous winners of the Lieberman Award, with Odyssey Sims (Baylor) being the most recent recipient of the award in 2014.
In March, five finalists will be presented to Ms. Lieberman and the Hall of Fame’s selection committee. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite finalist at www.hoophallawards.com. The winner of the 2019 Lieberman Award will be revealed in partnership with the WBCA at the Women’s Final Four in Tampa, Florida.
