Theresa Plaisance, senior forward, on the LSU women's basketball team has been named to the Naismith Trophy Midseason List according to LSU Sports on Feb. 12, 2014.

The Atlanta Tipoff Club selected 30 candidates out of the original 50 candidates on the pre-season list to remain on the Naismith Trophy List. The Naismith Trophy is a national award and the most prestigious of awards in women's basketball, as it goes to the women's basketball collegiate "Player of the Year."

Plaisance has also been selected to be on the 2014 Wooden Award Midseason Top 20 list that was announced in mid July. She is the only SEC player to make the Wooden Award Midseason Top 20.

In addition to the Naismith Trophy and Wooden Award lists, Plaisance is also a candidate for the Wade Trophy.

Plaisance has an outstanding record at LSU and leads the Lady Tigers with an average of 14.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. In SEC play, Plaisance averages 16.4 points per game. She is only one of 18 players in LSU's history that has gone over 1,000 points and 50 rebounds.

Plaisance won the SEC Player of the Week award in January after she posted a career high of 23 points against Ole Miss.

The second half of the game is when Plaisance turns on the steam and racks in her points. She is currently on a streak of 14 consecutive games in double digit figures. If you are wondering where Plaisance's talent comes from, her mother is the head coach for women's basketball at Nicholls State.

Plaisance, 6'5", is from New Orleans, La. and played high school basketball at Vandebilt Catholic High School.
