University of Maryland senior Tianna Hawkins, a Riverdale Baptist High School graduate, was added to the State Farm Wade Watch List, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association announced Monday.

Hawkins currently leads the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring with 19.4 points per game and is second in rebounding with 10 per game. Teammate Alyssa Thomas was named to the Wade Watch List earlier in the season.

State Farm and the Wade Trophy Coalition present The State Farm Wade Trophy to the nation's most outstanding NCAA Division I women's basketball player each year. The player not only excels athletically, but also serves as a positive role model both on and off the court.

The acclaimed list consists of players selected on the basis of game and season statistics, leadership, character, impact on their team and overall playing ability.

It will be trimmed to 12 finalists in mid-March and the winner will be announced during the Final Four.

Last week, Hawkins was added to the Wooden Award's Midseason Top 20 List. She was also voted to the All-ACC preseason team in the fall after making the All-ACC second team last year. Hawkins currently has 966 career rebounds, which puts her at No. 4 on Maryland's all-time list. Crystal Langhorne and Marissa Coleman are the only Terrapins to reach the 1,000-rebound mark.
