UB’s Dillard named to prestigious Wade Trophy watch list

UB Bulls

University at Buffalo senior Cierra Dillard earned another honor on Tuesday.

The Bulls’ star guard was named to the Wade Trophy Award watch list, which is given annually and is considered to be the most prestigious player of the year honor in women’s college basketball.  Last week, she was named to the Naismith Award watch list.

Dillard is averaging 26. 7 points per game through the first three games of the season and ranks sixth nationally in scoring.  

She and Bulls will return to the court Friday when they play Georgetown in the South Point Shootout, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
