Bama Basketball Player Shoots For Homecoming Queen
Alabama women’s basketball player Megan Abrams announced that she would be running for homecoming queen this year.
“I’m honored to say that I was chosen to run for homecoming queen,” said Abrams. “I pride myself on being a role model and leader on and off the court. Freshman year Megan would be proud of the person I have become.”
Abrams is a graduate student from Lafayette, La. and is entering her fifth season with the Tide.
Abrams has appeared on the SEC Academic Honor Roll three times (2019, 2020, 2021) and was named a member of the SEC Community Service Team and SEC Women’s Basketball Leadership Council this past year.
Abrams and her teammate Jada Rice founded a registered club at The University of Alabama for student-athletes called Project I.D, a safe space for student-athletes who identify with, or are allies for, minority groups, giving them the opportunity to voice their thoughts and ideas to create an inclusive student-athlete experience.
During the 2021-22 season, Abrams ranked second on the team in scoring with 15.2 ppg, despite going through an injury in the middle of the season. Abrams joined the 1,000 point club on March 21, 2022, after her 19-point performance against Tulane in the second round of the WNIT.
An athlete will be on the ballot once again as Alabama softball ace Montana Fouts ran for homecoming queen last year.
Voting will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 18 from 7:00 a.m. CST to 7:00 p.m. CST. The winner will be announced on Friday during the annual bonfire on The University of Alabama Quad and crowned at halftime of the homecoming game on Saturday.
