Adams Named Most Inspirational Athlete

May 1, 2017

DENTON -- Senior Candice Adams was awarded most inspirational athlete Monday at North Texas' Scrappys.

The Mean Green training staff and senior administration voted on the award.

Adams, a Cedar Hill, Texas, native, has overcome three torn ACLs, a torn MCL and meniscus tears in both knees. Due to a lack of cartilage in her knees, she played her entire senior season with torn meniscus in each knee, because doctors refused to operate.

Despite all of the adversity she has faced, Adams made over 100 starts and missed only a handful of games in her four seasons with the Mean Green. She was a leader not just with her stats but her hustle. Adams led the team this past year with 32 drawn charges in 29 games played.

She leaves North Texas 15th all-time in scoring, fourth all-time in 3-pointers and eighth all-time in career free throw percentage.
