Expectations continue to rise for Christyn Williams.

The UConn junior was named to the 20-player watch list for the 2021 Ann Meyers Drysdale Award, as announced Tuesday by the Naismith Hall of Fame and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

The award, now in its fourth year, is given to the top shooting guard in Division I women’s basketball.
