TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Aari McDonald, the 2020 Ann Meyers Drysdale Award winner, was named to the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award Watch List on Tuesday.

The All-American guard enters the 2020-21 season coming off a season where she earned a plethora of honors, including, but not limited to, Ann Meyers Drysdale Award Winner, Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, WBCA All-American, AP second-team All-American, USBWA second-team All-American, Wade Trophy Finalist, Honda Award Finalist and Naismith Defensive Player of the Year Finalist.
