The World Cup-winning U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team is nominated in the same championship-only category along with the Boston Red Sox, Clemson Tigers, New England Patriots, Toronto Raptors, and Virginia Cavaliers.
The winner will be decided by fan voting, which is ongoing on ESPN’s website.
Baylor says all the players with the exception of Queen Egbo and Chloe Jackson will be at the event.
Egbo is with Team USA training for the 2019 FIBA 19U Championships later this month and Jackson, a guard for the WNBA's Chicago Sky has a scheduling conflict.
Coach Kim Mulkey will walk the red carpet with her son, Kramer Robertson, who is on All-Star break while playing with the AAA Memphis Redbirds.
Mulkey’s daughter, Makenzie Fuller, as well as assistant coach Jennifer Roberts will be on hand for the event.
The ESPYs air at 7 p.m. CDT on ESPN.
Actor Tracy Morgan will serve as host at the Microsoft Center in LA.
The US Women’s Soccer Team was honored Wednesday morning in New York City with a parade and ceremony at City Hall.
