Duke's junior guard Jasmine Thomas is one of eight nominees for the Nancy Lieberman Award.
Criteria for the award are the floor leadership, play-making and ball-handling skills that personified Lieberman during her Hall of Fame career.
The finalists will be narrowed to three and the winner announced at the NCAA Final Four in San Antonio.
Thomas, who is also a candidate for the John R. Wooden award and State Farm Wade Trophy for national player of the year, is the ACC's only nominee for the honor.
