Tynice Martin is turning heads ahead of West Virginia women’s basketball’s Thursday season opener.
The senior guard was named to the Women’s Citizen Naismith Trophy Watch List. The award is given at the conclusion of every season to the women’s Player of the Year.
She is one of 10 players from the Big 12 to be named to the watch list, the second biggest such contingency behind the Pac 12’s 11 players.
Martin’s contention for the trophy will depend on her status which is currently up in the air, as she is currently serving an indefinite suspension for a violation of team rules.
