Asia Durr is one of 10 semifinalist for the Naismith Trophy, which is given annually to the best overall player in men’s and women’s college basketball.

Fans will then be able to vote for their favorite player by visiting between March 19-30 to cast their ballot. The fan component counts for five percent of the overall final vote, and the winner of the Citizen Naismith Trophy for Women’s Player of the Year will be revealed on March 31.

“These 10 women represent the most outstanding players at the college level,” said Eric Oberman, executive director of the Atlanta Tipoff Club. “As many of them lead their teams into the postseason, we are excited to see them compete for the Citizen Naismith Trophy Women’s College Player of the Year honor, and we look forward to welcoming one of them to the Naismith family.”

“We are thrilled to support these 10 women who have accomplished so much this season, both on and off the court,” said Eric Horowitz, managing director U.S. and travel retail, Citizen Watch Company of America, Inc. “These players are the best of the best, and we look forward to seeing who will be honored as the Citizen Naismith Trophy Women’s College Player of the Year.”

Congrats to Asia.
