Lexie Hull Wins Senior CLASS Award
MINNEAPOLIS - Lexie Hull was named the winner of the 2022 Senior CLASS Award, announced Thursday.
The award, chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I women's basketball coaches, national basketball media, and fans, is given annually to the most outstanding student-athlete in Division I women's basketball. Hull is the third Cardinal to win the award in women's basketball, with Candice Wiggins ('07-08) and Nnemkadi Ogwumike ('11-12) having done so previously.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior or graduate student and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: classroom, community, character, and competition.
Boasting a 3.90 GPA and set to graduate with both her bachelor's and master's degrees in management science and engineering this spring, Lexie Hull has cemented herself as the quintessential Stanford student-athlete in her time on The Farm. She is the second in program history to be a two-time first-team Academic All-American and just one of 15 players in Stanford history to be named All-Pac-12 three different times, and was also named to the league's All-Defensive Team for the second time this season. Lexie currently ranks 24th in program history with 1,402 career points. Her 191 career 3-pointers rank 11th in program history, and she has started every game in which she was available since her sophomore year. She ranks third on the team with 20 double-digit scoring performances this season and has led the team in scoring 24 times in her career, including a career-high 36 points against Kansas in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. She also leads the team and Pac-12 with 75 steals on the year.
Stanford opens the NCAA Tournament on Friday vs. Connecticut at 6:30 p.m. PST on ESPN.
