ATLANTA (February 4, 2013) – Senior guard Kelly Faris was added to the 2012-13 State Farm Wade Watch list as announced by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association on Monday morning. UConn now has four Huskies on the list as Faris joins teammates Stefanie Dolson, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Bria Hartley. Faris was one of eight additional student-athletes added to the list by the WBCA.

Faris has had an outstanding senior campaign as she is averaging 10.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.7 steals per game. She is currently sixth in the nation in assist/turnover ratio at 2.57.

Joining the preseason list of 25 “Wade Watch” hopefuls are Kelsey Bone of Texas A&M, Gennifer Brandon and Layshia Clarendon of Cal Berkeley, Kelly Faris of Connecticut, Tianna Hawkins of Maryland, Chelsea Hopkins of San Diego State, Niveen Rasheed of Princeton and Meighan Simmons of Tennessee.

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.
