FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — University of Arkansas junior Calli Berna has been named to the 2014 Nancy Lieberman Award Watch List.

The award is named after Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman and is presented to the player selected as the top point guard in NCAA Division I women's basketball.

Berna is one of 29 players named to the watch list announced by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

A selection committee appointed by the hall of fame will review the candidates. The list will be narrowed to 20 in February — then to five finalists in March.

The award winner will be announced during the Final Four.
