Kevi Luper, the leading scorer in the history of the Oral Roberts University women’s basketball program, joined Oklahoma’s Aaryn Ellenberg and Whitney Hand on the Naismith Trophy early season watch list.
Also on list is Kansas guard Angel Goodrich, a former Tahlequah Sequoyah standout.
The Naismith Trophy is presented to the individual judged to be the best player in college basketball. Baylor’s Brittney Griner will try to win the trophy for a second consecutive season.
The 50-player watch list was compiled by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, which based its criteria on player performances from the previous year and expectations for the 2012-2013 college basketball season.
