TALLAHASSEE, FLA., (www.franchisesportsonline.net) –The John R. Wooden award is usually given annually to the most outstanding men’s and women’s college basketball players. The award’s preseason top-30 list was presented on ESPN and the Lady Noles senior forward Shakayla Thomas was one of the names on there. This list is chosen by the members of the preseason poll of national woman’s college basketball.
Through two preseason games, Thomas leads the Seminoles with 19.5 points per game while shooting 52.9 percent from the floor. Last week, the Seminoles took on Jacksonville State and won 75-51. In that game, Thomas had 27 points and six rebounds. This week the Lady Noles will play an away game against the Florida Gators on Friday at 7 p.m.
