MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The State Farm Wade Trophy Committee, along with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has announced the addition of seven student-athletes to the 2010-11 State Farm Wade Watch list, including West Virginia senior Liz Repella.

State Farm and the Wade Trophy Coalition each year present The State Farm Wade Trophy to the nation’s most outstanding NCAA Division I women’s basketball player – 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 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 Indianapolis.

The Wade Trophy, named after the late, legendary three-time national champion Delta State University head coach Lily Margaret Wade, debuted in 1978 as the first-ever women's national player of the year award in college basketball. The Wade Trophy Coalition was established in June of 2000 when the WBCA partnered with The National Association of Girls and Women in Sport (NAGWS). For the past 10 years the two have worked together to present The State Farm Wade Trophy Player of the Year Award. A committee composed of coaches, administrators and media from across the United States selects the winner.
