Penn State Women’s Basketball’s Ashley Owusu Named To Ann Meyers-Drysdale Shooting Guard Of The Year Watch List

Penn State women’s basketball’s Ashley Owusu was named to Ann Meyers-Drysdale Shooting Guard of the Year Watch List, the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame announced Tuesday. Owusu, who won the award during her sophomore year in 2021 while at Maryland, will try to win it again as a graduate transfer from Virginia Tech.

The award is the top recognition for shooting guards in women’s college basketball. The top 20 shooting guards at the NCAA Division I level are selected by a committee for the watch list each season narrowing down the list in January and eventually reaching a final five in March.

The guard out of Woodbridge, Virginia, averaged 14.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and five assists during her time at Maryland. Throughout her sophomore and junior years in College Park, Owusu led the Terrapins to two Big Ten Tournament titles and was awarded the Jim & Kitty Delany Most Outstanding Player Award. She also achieved second-team All-Big Ten in 2020 and a first-team All-Big Ten in 2021.

Owusu went on to transfer to Virginia Tech for her senior season. She played in 17 games before sustaining a season-ending injury. She was on the Ann Meyers-Drysdale Shooting Guard Of The Year Watch List, Naismith Trophy Watch List, and the Wooden Award Watch List prior to the injury.
