No. 8 Maryland women’s basketball guard Katie Benzan was named a candidate for the 2022 Senior CLASS Award, the program shared over Twitter earlier this week.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition.
The 5-foot-6 Benzan, who came to the program during the COVID-19 season in 2020-21, has had a good season thus far for Maryland. Benzan has played in eight games and is averaging over 30 minutes, 13.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and a 43.3 shooting percentage from three-point range.
Her honors with the university also include a selection to the All-Big Ten Second Team (2021), being an AP All-America Honorable Mention (2021), and she led the NCAA in three-point percentage with a 50% clip (2021).
Maryland is currently on a three-game winning streak and it has a solid 9-2 record. Benzan has been a major part of the Terps’ success this season, and she will continue to make her mark with one of the best teams in the nation.
