Navy guard Shawn Anderson and Loyola Maryland guard Bri Betz-White have been selected as NCAA basketball candidates for the 2017-18 Senior CLASS Award. To be eligible, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in community, classroom, character and competition. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the award encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. Anderson is leading the Navy men (10-5, 1-1 Patriot League) in scoring for the third straight season at 12.7 points per game. He co-founded the nonprofit Forever Red Hurricanes with a high school classmate. A two-time Preseason All-Patriot League selection, Betz-White entered this women's season as the Patriot League's top point guard but has played in only five games because of injury. The candidates — 30 men and 30 women — will be narrowed to 10 each in February, and those 10 names will be placed on the ballot. The winner swill be announced during the Final Four. Other candidates include former Maryland guard Lexie Brown, now at Duke. For more on each candidate, go to seniorCLASSaward.com.
