Iowa guard Jaime Printy has been named to the Wooden Award Preseason Top 30 watch list, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association announced on Monday.

The award is given annually to women's college basketball's Division-I player of the year.

Printy and two other Big Ten players made the list: Ohio State senior Samantha Prahalis and Penn State junior Alexa Bentley. The recognition is based on last year's individual's performances and team records.

Printy earned All-American honors last year, becoming the youngest player in school history to do so. The Marion native was named to the Associated Press honorable mention All-American team, along with second-team (coaches) and third-team (media) All-Big Ten honors.

Printy helped lead Iowa to a 22-9 record during the 2010-11 season, averaging 16.8 points per game. The junior also scored in double-digits in 27 of 31 games, with nine 20-point games.

The Wooden Award will be announced after the conclusion of the upcoming season.

Iowa will open its season with an exhibition contest against Winona State on Nov. 6 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Tip-off time will be announced later.
