Notre Dame's Allen Receives More Preseason Recognition


Wald, Bruce, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Former Monessen High School and current University of Notre Dame women's basketball player Charel Allen continues to earn impressive recognition heading into her 2007-08 senior season.

Recently, Allen was listed as one of 25 players who have been named to the 2007-08 State Farm Wade Trophy Preseason List. This was announced last month by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association. This year marks Allen's first appearance on the preseason candidate list for the State Farm Wade Trophy, which goes to the nation's top collegiate women's basketball player, and it's also the fourth time in five years that an Irish women's basketball player has been placed under consideration for the award.

Earlier this summer, the 5-foot, 11-inch senior guard was chosen as a finalist for the USA Basketball National Under-21 Team. After four days of trials at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Allen was one of 14 finalists. Allen was hoping to become the first Notre Dame player to make the USA National team since Megan Duffy helped lead the USA World University Games Team to the gold medal in 2005. Duffy, as Allen, earned preseason Wade Trophy candidate status in 2005-06, going on to collect All-America honors. She currently is completing her second pro season with the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx.

Allen was selected from among a group of 45 players, ages 21 and under and born on or after Jan. 1, 1986, who took part in the USA Basketball Women's National Team Trials in late May. The 14 finalists for the USA U21 World Championship Team reconvened June 12 in Colorado Springs to begin training for the tournament. Unfortunately, Allen and Northwestern University's Amy Jaeschke, a 6- foot, 5-inch post player, were the final two cuts but listed as finalists.

Allen is one of eight Big East players who are on the 2007-08 State Farm Wade Trophy preseason candidate list. The others include Matee Ajavon, Essence Carson and Kia Vaughn, of Rutgers; Tina Charles and Renee Montgomery, of Connecticut; Angel McCoughtry, of Louisville; and Marcedes Walker, of Pittsburgh.

Rounding out the Wade's Watch list are Candace Parker, last year's winner; Nicky Anosike and Alexis Hornbuckle, of Tennessee; Jolene Anderson, of Wisconsin; Jayne Appel and Candice Wiggins, of Stanford; Marissa Coleman and Crystal Langhorne, of Maryland; Sylvia Fowles, of LSU; Devaniel Hampton, of California; Tasha Humphrey, of Georgia; Crystal Kelly, of Western Kentucky; Erlana Larkins, of North Carolina; Marscilla Parker, of Ohio State; Courtney Paris, of Oklahoma; and Abby Waner, of Duke.

A national awards committee consisting of leading basketball coaches, journalists and basketball administrators compiled the State Farm Wade Trophy preseason list, selecting student-athletes who are members of an NCAA Division I institution and are selected based on the following criteria: game and season statistics, leadership, character, effect on their team and overall playing ability. …
