LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Gonzaga University women’s basketball senior Courtney Vandersloot was one of 20 student-athletes named to the official John R. Wooden Award National Ballot announced Monday. The ballot decides the Women’s 2011 Wooden Award All-American Team and Player of the Year, presented annually to the nation’s top female basketball player. Vandersloot has now made the exclusive list for two consecutive seasons.

Vandersloot, the unprecedented three-time West Coast Conference Player of the Year and the Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award winner, currently leads the nation in assists per game for the second-straight season at 10.2. She is also first in assists-to-turnover ratio (3.34), 12th in double-doubles (17), 17th in steals per game (3.0), and 26th in points per contest (18.6). Vandersloot was named All-WCC for the fourth-straight season and was tabbed the WCC Tournament Most Valuable Player for the third-consecutive year after helping Gonzaga to its fourth WCC title in five years....

The Wooden Award All American Team will be announced the week of the “Elite Eight” round during the NCAA Tournament, making it unique among postseason awards. Voters, who are made up of the Wooden Award National Advisory Board, have until Monday, March 28 at Noon PDT to return their ballots. All players on the ballot have proven to their universities that they are making progress toward graduation and are maintaining a cumulative 2.0 GPA.
