Three Big Ten players are among the preseason Wade Watch list, a 25-member cast announced by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) on Tuesday. Minnesota's Rachel Banham, Nebraska's Jordan Hooper and Penn State's Maggie Lucas each appear in the preseason running for the award, which honors the Division I Player of the Year. Lucas was the consensus Big Ten Player of the Year in 2013, winning the honor from the coaches and media, while earning unanimous All-Big Ten accolades from the coaches group. Hooper earned first-team accolades from both panels, while Banham was a first-team coaches honoree. It is the second season Hooper and Lucas have earned the Wade Watch honor, while Banham garners her first preseason accolade.
