UConn places 4 among midseason Wooden Award candidates

Iowa's Gustafson named to Wooden Award Top 25

Miles Bridges of Michigan State named to Wooden Award midseason top 25 list

Texas A&M freshman guard Chennedy Carter was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 List, as announced on espnW.com Thursday. Players on the list are considered strong candidates for the most prestigious national player of the year honor.

Big 12 representatives include seniors Devonte' Graham (Kansas) and Jevon Carter (West Virginia) along with freshmen Trae Young (Oklahoma) and Mohamed Bamba (Texas).

Now, halfway through the year, he's among the frontrunners for one of the sport's major awards. He's averaging 16.4 points, 4.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game while shooting 46.1 percent.

Young tied the NCAA single-game assist record against Northwestern State back in December. The Big 12 and the Pac-12 conference each have three players apiece make the list. Former Sooner players Blake Griffin and Buddy Hield won the award in 2009 and 2016, respectively.

Kylie Jenner is Allegedly in Labor
The " Life of Kylie " star is not due this month, according to the sources, and she hasn't gone into premature labor either. Jenner won't talk about it, and neither will her sisters, which is odd for a family so devoted to broadcasting their lives.

Gustafson is one of three student-athletes not included on the preseason top 30 list to be added to the midseason top 25. The freshman is averaging a double-double per game too with a team-high 11.8 rebounds per contest. The National Ballot consists of 15 top players who have proven to their universities that they are also making progress toward graduation and maintaining at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA.

The 2017-18 Wooden Award will be handed out on April 6 in Los Angeles.

The award's advisory board will trim its list to 15 candidates in late February.
