DURANT, Okla. – Southeastern women’s basketball player Katie Webb is a 2020 nominee for NCAA Woman of the Year.
Webb, a native of Melissa, Texas, put together a spectacular season to end her storied career at SE. She picked up a pair of All-American honors and was named the Great American Conference Player of the Year in women’s basketball and was ultimately named Southeastern’s Female Athlete of the Year.
Over the season Webb averaged a league-leading 18.7 ppg while shooting 48.0 percent from the field and hauled in a team-best 7.6 rebounds per outing. Webb also dished out 2.7 assists per game, snagged 1.2 steals and blocked 16 shots. She also became Southestern’s number two scorer all-time with 1,649 points, which ranks fourth all-time in the GAC. Her 756 career rebounds is fourth all time at SE and eighth in conference history. In the classroom she most recently completed her MBA and was named to the AD and the President’s honor rolls, and in 2019 was CoSIDA Academic All-American.
Rooted in Title IX, the NCAA Woman of the Year Award was established in 1991 to recognize graduating female student-athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service and leadership throughout their collegiate careers. The nominees represent all three NCAA divisions, including 259 nominees from Division I, 126 from Division II and 220 from Division III. Nominees competed in 24 sports, with multi-sport student-athletes accounting for 128 of the nominees.
