Sullivan Nominated For Senior Award

KANSAS CITY, Mo.-Bayer Advantage, the title sponsor for the Senior CLASS award, has announced that Jake Sullivan, a senior guard from Oakdale, Minn., has been nominated for the 2003-04 designation as the top Division I senior player in the nation.

The Senior CLASS award is an acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School. The honor was created in 2001 to recognize players who had completed their college eligibility. An award is given to one male and one female player from Division I schools each season.

Among the 30 male nominees is Sullivan, a record-setting guard for Iowa State. Sullivan has already set school marks in three-pointers made, three-point shooting percentage and free throw percentage. Sullivan's 89.3 free throw percentage is best all-time in the Big 12 conference, and will qualify him for the NCAA all-time lists with seven more made free throws. Sullivan has 1,455 career points, good for 12th on the ISU all-time scoring list.

Ten finalists from the original nominee list will be selected by a national media committee in February. Voting will be held in March, and the men's winner will be announced during the Men's Final Four, held this year in San Antonio.
