UConn's Jefferson a finalist for Lieberman Award

UConn sophomore point guard Moriah Jefferson is one of five finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award, presented annually to the nation's top point guard.

Jefferson started every game as a sophomore and leads the team with 170 assists and 88 steals while shooting 58 percent from the field

Baylor's Odyssey Sims, Florida International's Jerica Coley, California's Brittany Boyd and Heather Martin of Tennessee-Martin are the other finalists.

Also, Breanna Stewart was named one of three finalists for the Dawn Staley Award along with Sims and South Carolina's Tiffany Mitchell. The award description said it goes to a guard who exemplifies the skills that Dawn possessed during her career. OK, so Stewart is not actually a guard but congrats for being a finalist for the award.
