Samantha Logic of the University of Iowa was named yesterday as the recipient for the 2014-15 Senior CLASS Award in NCAA Division I women’s basketball.
Women’s basketball coaches, media and fans chose the recipient of the award in a nationwide vote. The award is given to a senior athlete who shows outstanding performances in Division I basketball and proves remarkable success in the classroom, community, character and competition.
The total student-athlete is considered for the Senior CLASS Award, which inspires students to utilize their platform in athletics to grow leadership in bid to make a positive impact in their communities.
Erik Miner, executive director for the Senior CLASS Award, said, “Samantha is everything you want in a Senior CLASS Award winner—academics and athletics with strength of character, leadership and service.”
“She worked just as hard to get assists as she did to score points, which shows the kind of character and team-focused attitude that truly deserves to be honored,” he said in a news release published yesterday at the organization’s website.
Logic states the award as ‘special’ “because it encompasses everything you’ve done in college on and off the court and in the classroom.”
Earlier this week, Logic was selected a third-team Associated Press all-American. She was also unanimously nominated for the first team all-Big Ten team.
