LSU’s Aneesah Morrow a finalist for the Cheryl Miller Award

It’s been a tremendous first season at LSU for DePaul transfer forward Aneesah Morrow, and the junior finds herself in contention for some prestigious hardware.

On Wednesday, Morrow was named a finalist for the Cheryl Miller Award, which is given annually to the top small forward in women’s college basketball. She’s one of five players named to the list of finalists, which will be presented to the selection committee later this month.

Morrow was also named to the First Team All-SEC on Monday and is a finalist for the Naismith Award, given to the top player in the country regardless of position.

Morrow currently ranks seventh in the nation with 18 double-doubles on the year. Her 16.7 points per game rank sixth in the SEC, and her rebounding average of 10 ranks fifth.
