Gonzaga's Courtney Vandersloot Named 2011 Nancy Lieberman Award Winner

The award recognizes the nation’s top collegiate point guard in women’s Division I basketball. The criteria for the award are the floor leadership, play-making and ball-handling skills that personified Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman during her career. Sportswriters from across the country determined the award winner and finalists. The other finalists for the award were Skylar Diggins, Jeanette Pohlen and Danielle Robinson. Vandersloot is the first in NCAA Division I history, male or female, to accumulate more than 2,000 points and 1,000 assists (2,073 points and 1,118 assists). Averaging 19.8 points per game, Vandersloot led the nation in assists for the second year in a row. She broke the NCAA single-season assist record with 367 this year. The record had stood since 1987. She also became Gonzaga’s single season scoring leader with 712, breaking the record established in 1985.

On Courtney Vandersloot's Selection To The Wooden Preseason List

From SBN Seattle: There have always been concerns that her rather slight 5'9" frame would prevent her from advancing to the next level, as she was not heavily recruited out of high school, being passed over by Pac-10 teams in the region. Some still believe that will prevent her from becoming a productive WNBA player. But coach Kelly Graves provides some perspective for Gonzaga basketball fans. "If you looked at her if you (were) in a pickup game, she might be the last player you picked," Graves said in a March article by Howie Stalwick of The Olympian. "But so was John Stockton." I can say without hesitation that Vandersloot was the best point guard I saw last season on the west coast. Others around the country might have strong arguments for best in the nation. But I'm looking forward to seeing her play this year.

Both Gonzaga University and Texas A&M University coaches said that Saturday night's first round matchup between Gonzaga and the University of North Carolina was a fun game to be involved in.
