From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award is a college basketball award in the United States intended to honor shorter-than-average players who become stars in the game. The award, named in honor of James Naismith's daughter-in-law, was established for men in 1969 and for women in 1984. The men's award is presented to the nation's most outstanding senior who is 6 feet (1.83 m) and under, while the women's version is presented to the top senior who is 5 feet 8 inches (1.73 m) and under (at one point, 5'6" (~1.68 m) and under). The men's award is selected by a panel from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), while the women's is selected by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA).
