  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers junior Cappie Pondexter (Chicago, IL) has been named one of 12 finalists for the 2004 Nancy Lieberman Award, given annually to the top Division I point guard in women’s basketball.

    Pondexter, a 5-9 guard, is averaging 18.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.9 steals per game for the Scarlet Knights this season. An honorable mention All-America selection by the Associated Press and Kodak/Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) last season, she twice has been named the BIG EAST Conference Co-Player of the Week this winter, and she earned a spot on the Preseason WNIT All-Tournament Team.
