By clicking the link here, you can follow the instructions from there that will show you how to vote. It’s quite a simple process, actually. You’ll have to select at least four other players outside of Howard that fall into the other four positions in order to complete the voting process. Once you’ve chosen Howard and your four others, just submit the final results by adding your email. If you’re doing this for the first time, it might ask you to validate your vote by clicking a one-time link sent via email. After that, you can vote once a day until the deadline with ease.
In her second season as a Wildcat, Howard was second in the nation in scoring at 23.4 points per game to go along with a team-high 6.5 rebounds. The Cleveland, TN native shot 43.3 percent from the field, 38.2 percent from distance, and 79.1 percent from the free-throw line in 27 total games.
This award marks just one of many that Howard has been nominated for this season, including being named a semifinalist for the Citizen Naismith Trophy and placed on the ballot for the John R. Wooden Award.
Howard started her sophomore campaign on the preseason watch list for the Cheryl Miller Award and has been in the running ever since. The number of finalists was cut down to five on March 11 as Howard joins Megan Walker (UConn), Ashley Joens (Iowa State), Satou Sabally (Oregon), and Michaela Onyenwere (UCLA).
The winner will be announced on April 10th at The College Basketball Awards live on ESPN2.
