Drake University Athletics issued the following announcement on Oct. 25.
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the Women's Basketball Coaches Association announced Thursday redshirt junior Sara Rhine (Eldon, Mo.) of the Drake University women's basketball team is one of 20 watch list candidates for the 2019 Katrina McClain Award.
In 2017-18, Rhine played in 32 games, averaged 15.6 points per game while shooting a league-high 59.1 percent from the floor and pulling down 6.5 rebounds per game. Rhine won her second career MVC Sixth Player of the Year award, was named MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and she was picked to the MVC Scholar-Athlete First Team and to the All-MVC First Team. Rhine, who scored surpassed 1,000 career points last season, was named 2016 MVC Freshman and Sixth Player of the Year and earned All-MVC Honorable Mention accolades following her freshman season.
Named after the two-time All-American and 1987 National Player of the Year, the annual award in its second year recognizes the top power forwards in women's NCAA Division I college basketball.
Drake hosts Dubuque University Sunday in an exhibition contest with tipoff scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Knapp Center. The Bulldogs open the regular season Nov. 7 at Nebraska.
