Bridget Carleton: Female Basketball Athletic Prospect Award

Canada's Bridget Carleton is one of the most complete basketball players in the NCAA"

The 21 year old Carleton is currently having a huge senior season for Iowa State Basketball.

They demonstrate their leadership through their actions on the floor, always encouraging their fellow team mates and facilitating and helping them. On the bench they are encouraging their players on the floor.

This player works extremely hard (strong work ethic) at practice and is often the first player in the gym to practise and the last person out of the gym. Coaches refer to such a player as having a high basketball IQ and being highly coachable...always willing to listen and trying one's best to apply what the coach has requested. Such a player is always highly selfmotivated to get even better and to improve one's game to the next stage of development....they have a love/passion for the game and it shows at practise and at games.
