IU women's basketball senior forward Amanda Cahill was selected Wednesday as one of the 20 preseason candidates for the Cheryl Miller Award.
The award acknowledges the best small forward in collegiate women's basketball at the end of the season. A few weeks ago, she was named as one of the All-Big Ten Preseason honorees along with senior guard Tyra Buss.
The 20 selections will be narrowed down to 10 in February and then five finalists will be selected in March. The winner will be announced during an awards ceremony at the NCAA Women’s Final Four in Columbus, Ohio.
Last season, Cahill led the Hoosiers in rebounding with 8.9 per game and was second in scoring, averaging 14.8 points.
With a young roster, IU will turn to Cahill as one of the primary offensive weapons.
Cahill’s senior campaign will begin at 2 p.m. this Saturday in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall as IU plays Arkansas State.
