    Lacey named as finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award

    From BF's Twitter this morning

    "Alison Lacey named one of the 8 finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award for best point guard in the nationGreat honor-well deserved"

    Lyndsey Medders was the finalist in 2007, Megan Taylor was in 2002 and Stacey Freese was in 2000.

    I wonder who the other finalists are - haven't been able to find anything on the Net. Sue Bird won 2000-2002, Lindsey Harding won it in 2007.

    Re: Lacey named as finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award

    Could Alison Lacey be an upgrade at the PG on the men's team? Will she consider it?

    Re: Lacey named as finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award

    some pretty tough competition this year. It would be great to see an ISU point guard win the award for once. Lacey is definitely deserving, though Riliey, Prahalis, Thomas, and Vandersloot are pretty good choices too.

    Re: Lacey named as finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award

    Here's what I find

    Alison Lacey Iowa State, Sr – No. 15 A/P Poll, No. 26 RPI – 17.3 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 3.3 assists to TO ratio


    Nadirah McKenith St. John's, Fr – No. 18 AP Poll, No. 145 RPI – can’t find her stat


    Samantha Prahalis Ohio State, So – No. 10 AP Poll, No. 7 RPI, 16.6 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 1.93 assists to TO ratio

    Sam Quigley DePaul, So – NR, No. 60 RPI, 13.9 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.34 assists to TO ratio


    Andrea Riley Oklahoma State, Sr – No. 23 AP Poll, No. 49 RPI. 25.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 1.48 assists to TO ratio. I will be surprised if she wins as she was suspended for a fight last season.


    Danielle Robinson Oklahoma, Jr – No. 11 AP Poll, No. 9 RPI – 16.8 rpg, 3.1 rpg, 1.24 assists to TO ratio


    Jasmine Thomas Duke, Jr – No. 6, No. 2 AP Poll, No. 2 RPI, 15.7 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 1.49 assists to TO ratio

    Courtney Vandersloot Gonzaga, Jr – No. 19 AP Poll, No. 47 RPI, 14.9 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.2 assists to TO ratio

    Lacey deserves to win, but in most cases, national awards are won by players from high-profile program.

    In all honesty... I think Iowa State is a pretty high profile program in the ranks of Women's college basketball.

    I hope the profile is "high" enough. I want her to win and I do believe she deserves it. There's nothing negative the voters can say about her: lone senior in an extremely young team, top 10 leaders in almost all of the school statistics, 3 (and soon to be 4) NCAA appearances. Statistically, she's a complete player.

    I am just concerned that Jasmine Thomas or Samantha Prahalis will win it because they are from the "bigger" schools.

    I agree with your concerns..... BUT.... I also agree with all of the pros that you listed for Lacey. She has been outstanding this year and in the years past. She has by far done more with less this year without a doubt then anyone else on that list. Hell.... with as many key players as we had to replace from last year most people thought this would be a rebuilding year for the team but the beat just goes on for BF and the Cyclones. There is a reason that those freshman post players are playing as well as they are in the toughest conference in the country....

    let's keep our fingers crossed, my friend ! If she wins, that'll be HUGE for her and the program !

    Come on, those are two very good players, who would also be very deserving. They are great players in their own right, not just because of who they play for.
    If Lacey doesn't win it, it doesn't mean there was an injustice. The entire list is comprised of very good players.

    This is true. In my opinion I do not see anyone on that list that is more deserving then Allison Lacey though. She by far means more to the success or the continued success for her team this season in particular then any other player on the list. That and her stats are outstanding while playing in the toughest conference in the country. There will be no injustice if she doesn't win it. I just think that if the people that vote on this have half a brain they will vote for her to win this award.

    I agree with you that these are two very good players and would also be very deserving. But we have to admit, sometimes there are certain things other than statistics (such as: TV exposure, etc).

    I would agree with that. Teams like Duke and Ohio State are are national tv much more than Iowa State (Lacey) or Oklahoma State (Riley).
    Andrea Riley is a tremendous player, though. She would be the favorite to win this IMO.

    If you have seen Prahalis play, then you would know she has a tremendous impact on that OSU team. She is only a sophomore, and she is a stud, runs the team, and has tremendous guts. I would say it won't go to her because she is young, but she is very similar to Lacey in her leadership on that team and she is damn quick and good with the ball.

    If I was a betting man, my bet would be Riley. Although her violent actions last year on/off the court may not go unnoticed.
