She is shooting 68.8 percent from the field and 83.5 percent from the free throw line. Chosen by a poll of national college basketball experts, the list is comprised of 25 student-athletes who are front-runners for one of college basketball's most prestigious individual honors, based on their performances during the first half of the 2017-18 season.

The final vote will include almost 1,000 voters who will rank in order their 10 top players from the list of 15. Young is leading the nation in points (29.2) and assists (10.1) per game.

Shamet is averaging a team-high 16.1 points for No. 5 Wichita State (13-2, 3-0 American).

A total of 15 players will make the final ballot for the award, and the victor will be announced on Friday, April 6.


Bridges' honors include Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year, and preseason National Player of the Year by ESPN, NBC Sports, CBS Sports and Sports Illustrated.

The freshman is considered by many to be the frontrunner for the award. The Big 12 and the Pac-12 conference each have three players apiece make the list.

Michigan State has never had a player win the Wooden Award since it was created in 1976.

The Wooden Award will narrow its field to 20 candidates in February, with the top 15 players eventually making it onto the final ballot prior to the NCAA Tournament. The victor of the 2018 John R. Wooden Award will be presented during the ESPN College Basketball Awards presented by Wendy's on Friday, April 6, 2018. Gustafson is a junior forward for the 17th ranked Iowa Hawkeyes. Tipoff for that game is scheduled for 1 p.m.
