Motley Tabbed to Wooden Award Top 30 List
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Adrienne Motley of the University of Miami women’s basketball team has recently been named a member of the John R. Wooden Award Preseason Top 30.
A 5-foot-9-inch senior guard, Motley is a two-time reigning First Team All-ACC pick by both the ACC Coaches and the Blue Ribbon Panel.
Motley was a Preseason All-ACC selection by both outlets this year for the second consecutive season. She also has been tabbed to the Naismith Trophy Player of the Year Preseason Watch List and the Nancy Lieberman Award Pre-Season Watch List.
A native of Newport News, Va., Motley was College Sports Madness Preseason Fourth Team All-American.
Thus far in 2016-17, Motley is averaging 11.5 points and 3.4 assists per game, both second-best on No. 11/12 Miami (10-1). She has logged 15-plus points in each of the Hurricanes’ last two games, including registering 22 in a victory at FIU.
The ACC placed 10 players on the prestigious Wooden Award Preseason Top 30 list, good for twice as many selections as any other conference.
Motley and the Hurricanes will be back in action Tuesday night at 5 p.m., when they meet Maine in the Miami Holiday Tournament championship game at the Watsco Center.
