Aari McDonald averaged 20.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.6 steals a game in a strong follow-up to her dominant 2018-19 season. “She is reading the game better,” says her coach.

Aari McDonald has been named one of four finalists for the WBCA Wade Trophy, given annually to the nation's top women's college basketball player.

The UA's junior guard is joined by Louisville's Dana Evans, South Carolina's Tyasha Harris and Oregon's Sabrina Ionescu.

McDonaldled the Pac-12 with 20.6 points and 2.3 steals per game. Earlier this month, she was named a second-team All American by the Associated Press and USBWA. She is also a finalist for the Naismith Defensive Player of the Year, Ann Meyers Drysdale Award and the Wooden Award.

The Wade Trophy winner will be announced April 2.
