Hartley a finalist for Nancy Lieberman Award

UConn sophomore Bria Hartley is one of eight finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award which is awarded annually to the nation's top point guard.

Joining Hartley on the list is Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins, Angel Goodrich of Kansas, Duke's Chelsea Gray, Nebraska's Lindsey Moore, Samantha Prahalis of Ohio State, Baylor's Odyssey Sims and Haley Steed of Brigham Young.

The winner will be recognized during an Apr. 18 banquet at the Detroit Athletic Club.

Hartley is averaging 13.9 points, is second on the team with 134 assists and 61 3-pointers and third on the team with 67 steals. She needs 26 points to join Svetlana Abrosimova and Maya Moore as the only UConn players to reach the 1,000 career point plateau as a sophomore.

"It means a lot," Hartley said. "I have been working all season on getting better as a point guard and making sure my assist/turnover (ratio) is getting better and taking care of the ball. It really helped me out a lot working out with Shea Ralph has improved (her game). I am working at being a better point guard and see things beforehand."
