IU women’s basketball senior forward Brenna Wise earned a spot on the Senior Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School Award First Team on Tuesday. 

The CLASS award is awarded annually to NCAA seniors in Division I women’s basketball who use their platform to positively affect their communities.  

The award recognizes seniors who have exhibited achievements in competition, the classroom and community, as well as in their character. The University of Oregon’s senior guard Sabrina Ionescu was the recipient of the individual CLASS award.

Wise was a team captain in her two years at IU and was selected by a nationwide vote of Division I women’s basketball coaches and fans. She was a 2018-19 All-Big Ten Second Team selection and started all 66 games of her IU career. 

Wise scored more than 1,400 points and pulled in nearly 850 rebounds during her collegiate career. 

Off the court, Wise was an executive member of the IU Student Athletic Advisory Committee and served with organizations such as Hoosiers Helping Hoosiers, IU Best Buddies and the Candy Stripe Crew event for disabled and handicapped adults and children.
