Women’s basketball senior forward Megan Nipe is the 2013 recipient of the Robin Roberts/WBCA Broadcasting Scholarship.
The $4,500 award is presented by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association to one female collegiate basketball player annually who intends to pursue a career in sports journalism.
Nipe, a journalism and mass communications major, has started all 25 games for the Colonials this season. Across those contests, she’s averaging 9.5 points per game, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game, and is the second-leading scorer and rebounder on the team.
“Megan is deserving of the Robin Roberts/WBCA Broadcasting Scholarship,” WBCA CEO Beth Bass said in a release. “Congratulations to Megan on receiving this scholarship. I wish Megan the best of luck in pursuing a career in sports communication or journalism. We look forward to watching you shine professionally.”
