Utah State Moves to 2nd Round of Naismith Student Section of the Year Vote


Thursday, Feb. 07, 2013


USU student HURD logo

Utah State University’s HURD has qualified to move to the second round of voting in the second annual Naismith Student Section of the Year competition.

 

After the first round of votes, the Aggies are in ninth-place with 4,415 votes. The top 16 vote-getters are moving on to the next round. USU is the only school from Utah to advance through the first round.

 

As the Western Athletic Conference school to receive the most votes, Utah State will receive a $250 donation from the Naismith organization. The winning school will receive an additional $10,000 to go toward its general scholarship fund.

 

Online voting will reopen Friday, Feb. 8, with the counts reset to zero. By visiting www.facebook.com/ILoveCollegeHoops, Aggie fans can vote once per day for the HURD.

 

The Naismith Student Section of the Year Award, which is presented through a partnership of The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), an affiliate of IMG College, and the Atlanta Tipoff Club, administrators of the Naismith Awards, is dedicated to celebrating fans who love college hoops and provide support to their college basketball team with devotion and passion.
