OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — University of Iowa guard Samantha Logic is one of 10 finalists for the 2014-15 Senior CLASS Award, announced today. The Racine, Wisconsin, native is the lone finalist from the Big Ten Conference.
The 10 finalists were chosen by national media from the list of 30 women’s candidates announced in October. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to select the winner at seniorclassaward.com. Votes can be submitted at the Senior CLASS Award website through March 23. Fan votes will be combined with those of the media and Division I head coaches to determine the winners. Senior CLASS Award recipients will be announced during the 2015 NCAA Women’s Final Four.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their athletic platforms to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. To be eligible for the award, student-athletes must be classified as NCAA Division I seniors and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.
Logic — most recently named to the Naismith Trophy Women’s Midseason 30 list on Feb. 11 – has also been named to the 2015 Nancy Lieberman Award Watch, a 2014-15 `Wade Watch’ candidate, the John R. Wooden Award Women’s Midseason Top 20 List, and the Dawn Staley Award Watch List. The preseason All-Big Ten honoree and ESPN All-American is also a Capital One Academic All-District selection.
Logic is the NCAA’s active career assists leader (791) and is tied for fourth in assists in Big Ten history. She leads the Big Ten and ranks fifth in the NCAA in the category this season (7.3), while averaging 12.0 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
The No. 13 Hawkeyes (19-4, 10-2) takes on No. 20 Nebraska (17-6, 7-5) tonight at 8 p.m. (CT) in Lincoln, Nebraska. The game will air live on the Big Ten Network.
