Midseason awards

ESPNW has designated midseason awards:

Player of the year: Jewell Loyd, Notre Dame

Freshman of the year: A’Ja Wilson, South Carolina

Coach of the year: Charli Turner Thorne, Arizona State

Most improved player: Morgan Bailey, BYU

Comeback player: Morgan Tuck, UConn

Biggest surprise: Minnesota’s success without Rachel Banham

Biggest disappointment: Michigan State

WNBA #1 draft pick: Isabelle Harrison, Tennessee

All-Americans: Nina Davis, Baylor; Jewell Loyd, Notre Dame; Tiffany Mitchell, South Carolina; Breanna Stewart, UConn; Amanda Zahui B., Minnesota.

The only selection I have issue with is head coach. Nothing against Charli Turner Thorne, but Mississippi State’s Vic Schaefer, Princeton’s Courtney Banghart or Seton Hall’s Tony Bozzella have done more with less.
