University of Washington senior Kelsey Plum has been selected as one of four finalists for the 2017 Wade Trophy, regarded as “The Heisman of Women’s Basketball,” presented annually to the NCAA Division I player of the year. Plum is also one of four finalists for the Naismith Award.

The Wade Trophy, in its 40th year, is the oldest national player of the year award in the women’s game. It is named in honor of the late, legendary Delta State University coach Lily Margaret Wade, who won three consecutive national championships with the Lady Statesmen. The trophy will be presented April 1.

Joining Plum on the list of candidates are Napheesa Collier of Connecticut, Kelsey Mitchell of Ohio State and A’ja Wilson of South Carolina.

A Poway, CA., native, Plum is averaging 32.6 points per game, the top mark in the NCAA. This year she became the leading scorer in NCAA women’s history, both for a single season and a career. In the final regular-season game of her career, Plum scored a Pac-12 record 57 points.

Plum and the Huskies (29-5) will play 31-4 Mississippi State in a Sweet Sixteen contest Friday at 4 p.m., PT., in Oklahoma City on ESPN2.

    Is there a question here? The only way Plum does not win would be strictly political – let’s hope that will not be the case! My second hope is the Storm make her their #1 choice!
