— Penn State senior guard Maggie Lucas has been selected as one of the 30 candidates for the Senior CLASS Award, given to the student-athletes that have notable achievements in four areas of excellence — community, classroom, character and competition.

The list will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season and those finalists will be voted upon by media, coaches and fans.

Lucas is the reigning Big Ten Player of the Year. She was third in the Big Ten in scoring (20.1), third in free throw percentage (.900), sixth in steals (2.3) and second in three-point field goals made (3.1).

Additionally, Lucas led the Big Ten and was fourth nationally in three-point field goal percentage with a .462 mark, which was also the second-best single-season mark in school history. Lucas enters her final season seventh in program history with 1,838 points.
