Missy Franklin, the 2015 Honda Cup winner, was formally presented with the Cup during a halftime ceremony at the Cal men's basketball game on Saturday in Berkeley.

Eric Van Olst represented Honda during the on-campus ceremony. On-campus presentations give the fans and schools a chance to honor the nominee before a home crowd. The "Gold Out" game was the first sellout of the season and Cal men's basketball went on to upset No. 12 Arizona, 74-73.

The CWSA, celebrating its 40th year, presents the Honda Sports Award annually to top women student-athletes in 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports.  Honda Sports award winners will be presented with the honor during on-campus presentations throughout the year and all Honda Sports award winners become a finalist for the prestigious 2016 Honda Cup award presented in June.
