2020 Women’s D-I College Awards: Superlatives and Snubs

Our reporters celebrate some of their favorite performers from the season that didn't quite earn their way into our official awards.

Our annual college awards reflect the collective knowledge and opinion of a team of reporters and editors. We do our best as a group to be in-person at tournaments, study film, and talk to players and coaches around the country, but it’s just a fact that not everyone has the same opportunity to watch every team out there. Between our differing exposure to teams and differing evaluations of the players we do witness, we don’t always see eye to eye on who were the brightest stars or most impactful performers of the season.

Today, our reporters share their thoughts on the players who they felt were overlooked by their colleagues when filling out award ballots, discussing players they felt were snubbed for recognition of their 2020 accomplishments.

As a reminder, here’s a list of our official 2020 D-I Women’s Division awards:

Player of the Year Award
Defensive Player of the Year Award
Offensive Player of the Year Award
Rookie of the Year Award
Breakout Player of the Year Award
Coach of the Year Award
All-American First Team
