Irving, Texas - Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky named Loren McDaniel as a Jim Castañeda Postgraduate Scholarship Award recipient. The conference annually presents the $4,000 Postgraduate Scholarship awards to graduates as selected by the C-USA Faculty Athletics Representatives and approved by the Board of Directors.

A four-year letterwinner, McDaniel started in 85 of 113 games for the Golden Hurricane, and averaged 5.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per contest. She concluded her career ranked fifth in school history in rebounding (642) and ninth in double-doubles (6). McDaniel graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology in May 2014 and has been accepted to Missouri State's Industrial Organizational Psychology program, where she will earn dual credits for a Masters of Business Administration and Human Resource management.

This is the sixth year the award has been named for Dr. Castañeda, who served Rice University for 46 years as an educator, coach and Faculty Athletics Representative before he passed away in November 2008.
