Pivec Tabbed to Miller Watch List


CORVALLIS – For the second-straight season the Oregon State women’s basketball team will be represented on the Cheryl Miller Award Preseason Watch List, as Mikayla Pivec has been named among the top-20 candidates for the honor, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced Wednesday.

Named after the three-time Naismith Player of the Year and Class of 1995 Hall of Famer, the annual award in its third year recognizes the top small forwards in women’s NCAA Division I college basketball.

The Selection Committee for the Cheryl Miller Award is composed of top women’s college basketball personnel including media members, head coaches, sports information directors and Hall of Famers. New to the award this season is Fan Voting presented by Dell Technologies in each of the three rounds. By mid-February, the watch list of 20 players for the 2020 Cheryl Miller Award will be narrowed to just 10. In March, five finalists will be presented to Ms. Miller and the Hall of Fame’s selection committee.

The winner of the 2020 Cheryl Miller Small Forward Award will be presented at The College Basketball Awards presented by Wendy’s in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, April 10, 2020, along with the other four members of the Women’s Starting Five.

Pivec was an All-Pac-12 selection last season, and a WBCA All-America Finalist. The senior is already among the top nine in Oregon State history for career rebounds, and currently sits 14th in career points. She shot 52.6 percent from the floor last season, the second-highest mark in the Pac-12. Her 9.2 rebounds per game was third-best in the conference.
