Megan Gustafson

The players on the list are considered strong candidates for the 2018 John R. Wooden Award presented by Wendy's. Previous winners include Larry Bird (1979), Michael Jordan ('1984), Tim Duncan (1997), Kevin Durant (2007) and Blake Griffin (2009). Oklahoma already has 13 wins this season, two more than it had in all of 2016-17. On the men's side, Kansas senior Devonte' Graham and Creighton senior Marcus Foster are among the 25.

Ionescu also has four triple-doubles this season and an NCAA-record eight in her career.

Carter ranks in the top five nationally among freshmen in assists (5.2), field goals made (130), free throws (66), and free throw percentage (82.5).

Young has scored 25 points in 13 straight games (dating back to November 23), the longest such streak by any D-I player in at least 20 years.

Landale is arguably the best centre in college basketball right now, and is joined by Seton Hall's Angel Delgado as one of only two centres named on the list. Gustafson is one of five Big Ten student-athletes to garner five Player of the Week awards in a single season. He has also earned Big 12 Newcomer of the Week on November 20 and December 4.

OR sophomore point guard Sabrina Ionescu is one of 25 players who remain in contention for the John R. Wooden Award, given to women's college basketball's top player. The leading candidates will be further pared to 20 top players in early February.

Landale was also this week named Hero Sports' Mid-Major Mid-season Player of the Year, and this latest recognition is unlikely to be the last this season. Voters are permitted to take into consideration the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament when casting the ballot.
