UConn's Jefferson finalist for Lieberman Award

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

Jefferson is averaging 12 points per game and leads the top-ranked Huskies with 159 assists and 88 steals.

The other finalists are Baylor's Niya Johnson, Iowa's Samantha Logic, Notre Dame's Lindsay Allen and Kelsey Mitchell of Ohio State.

UConn has had three winners of the award as Sue Bird won it in each of the first three years it was handed out, Diana Taurasi is a two-time winner and Renee Montgomery was the 2009 honoree.

The Nancy Lieberman Award will be announced during the Final Four.

Kelsey Mitchell is a combo guard at best: her assist/TO ratio is below 1.00, hardly what you want from a point guard.

If you want simply the best passer, it's Niya Johnson, but she's a weak scorer with no outside shot.

Lindsay Allen doesn't do anything significantly better than Moriah Jefferson.

I feel it's between Moriah Jefferson or Samantha Logic. I wouldn't grumble if either won.
