Arizona Wildcats junior guard Aari McDonald (2) warms-up before Arizona Wildcats women’s basketball 74-42 win over the North Dakota Fighting Hawks at McKale Center 1721 E Enke Dr, Tucson, Ariz., on October 2nd, 2019.

Arizona Wildcats guard Aari McDonald has been named one of four finalists for the Honda Award, given annually to the best player in women's college basketball. 

McDonald, a junior who announced on Sunday that she's returning for her senior season, is in elite company. Oregon's Sabina Ionescu is a finalist, as are Louisville's Dana Evans and South Carolina's Tyasha Harris.

McDonald is also a finalist for the Wade Trophy and Ann Meyers Drysdale Award. She was named an AP and USWBA second-team All-American last month. 

McDonald averaged 20.6 points and 2.3 steals per game, both the best in the Pac-12 Conference.
