TCU guard Lauren Heard is the only Big 12 players selected to the Nancy Lieberman Point Guard of the Year Award watch list released on Monday.

Heard, a super senior for the Horned Frogs, is coming off a season in which she was named All-Big 12 First Team and Big 12 All-Defensive Team. She led the Horned Frogs in points (2nd, 21.2), rebounds (9th, 7.1), assists (3rd, 4.8) and steals (1st, 2.6). She set TCU’s single-game steals record with 11 against Oklahoma last season. Her 21.2 points per game last season was a single-season TCU record, and she holds the all-time record for most made free throws.


The Lieberman Point Guard of the Year Award is named after the Hall of Fame guard, who went blazed a trail for women’s basketball as the first woman to play in a men’s professional league when she joined the Springfield Fame in the USBL in 1986. She had a stellar career at Old Dominion, where she led the Lady Monarchs to a 125-15 record, 1 WNIT Title and back to back National Championships in 1979 and 1980.
