Wade Watch List

Princeton women's basketball senior Niveen Rasheed was named to the State Farm "Wade Watch" list, it was announced Monday by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). The guard is one of eight players added midseason to the list, recognizing the top 33 players in the nation.

"Niveen is such a special player for what she does on both ends of the court, and the passion, leadership and intensity she brings to our program on a daily basis," said Princeton head coach Courtney Banghart. "Niveen is a winner because of how she goes about her work. She's a great player on a great team and is most deserving of the recognition she continues to earn."

This is the third national watch list Rasheed was recognized by. In the fall she was named to the Wooden Award Preseason Top 30 and the 50-player Naismith Watch List. Along with her national recognition, the Tiger co-captain has been named Ivy League Player of the Week three times this season.

The reigning Ivy League Player of the Year leads Princeton in nearly every statistical category, averaging 16.6 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. She's recorded six double-doubles and scored in double figures 16 times, including the last 15 consecutive games.

State Farm and the Wade Trophy Coalition present The State Farm Wade Trophy to the nation's most outstanding NCAA Division I women's basketball player each year - one who not only excels athletically but also serves as a positive role model both on and off the court. The acclaimed Wade Watch list, from which The State Farm Wade Trophy recipient is chosen, consists of players selected on the basis of game and season statistics, leadership, character, effect on their team and overall playing ability. 

The State Farm Wade Watch list will be trimmed to 12 finalists in mid-March. State Farm and the Wade Trophy Coalition will officially announce the State Farm Wade Trophy winner during the WBCA National Convention, held in conjunction with the NCAA Women's Final Four in New Orleans.
