Gonzaga sophomore not among nation’s top-4 point guards

Montgomery.jpgThere’s been a lot of polling about which undefeated Connecticut team is the best, mainly comparing Storm Sue Bird’s 2002 undefeated Huskies to the current rendention. But if we’re going head-to-head among the point guards, UConn senior Renee Montgomery is starting to stack awards like Bird — but is lagging behind.
Today Montgomergy (pictured right) was named the 2009 Nancy Lieberman Award winner by sportswriters across the country. But Bird, who is currently playing for Spartak Moscow, won the award three consecutive seasons (2000-2002).
Gonzaga sophomore PG Courtney Vandersloot (Kentwood) was among the 13 candidates, but not the final four. The three finalists were Kristi Cirone (Illinois St.), Danielle Robinson (Oklahoma), and Kristi Toliver (Maryland).
Connecticut faces Stanford on Sunday in the semifinals of the NCAA Women’s Final Four in St. Louis. While the overall No. 1 Huskies are heavy favorites in the game, the No. 2 Cardinal have defeated UConn in five of their past eight meetings, including the semifinals last year.
