2009-10 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award

November 4, 2009 (Overland Park, KS) – Sixty NCAA men’s basketball student-athletes who excel both on and off the court were tabbed as candidates today for the 2009-10 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – classroom, character, community and competition.


An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School™, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.


This year’s candidate class includes 25 players on the preseason watch lists for the men’s and women’s John R. Wooden Award and eight men’s players who are candidates for the AT&T Naismith Trophy.


Lowe’s, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, will announce the Senior CLASS Award winner for men’s basketball at the 2010 NCAA Men’s Final Four® in Indianapolis in April and for women’s basketball at the 2010 NCAA Women’s Final Four® in San Antonio in April.
