Riley named top point guard

Oklahoma State senior Andrea Riley has earned the 2010 Nancy Lieberman Award, which recognizes the top point guard in women's Division I basketball.

The criteria for the award are the floor leadership, play-making and ball-handling. Sports media members vote for the winner.

Samantha Prahalis of Ohio State, Danielle Robinson of Oklahoma and Courtney Vandersloot of Gonzaga were also finalists.

A 5-foot-5 point guard, Riley led the Big 12 averaging 26.7 points and 6.5 assists a game. She was the nation's second leading scorer. Riley is the first player in Big 12 history to lead the league in scoring three consecutive seasons. She also dished out 220 assists, which is fourth on the single-season list in Big 12 history.

Riley was named a second-team All-American by the Associated Press and is Oklahoma State's all-time leader in scoring, assists, field goals, free throws, made 3-pointers and minutes played.
