Gustafson is now ranked in the top-15 nationally in 10 categories. He's among the top 10 in the Big Ten in both scoring and rebounding.

Maten has scored in double figures in 14 of the Bulldogs' 15 games, with seven 20-point outputs and seven double-doubles.

Young is one of four from the Big 12 and one of five freshmen who are midseason candidates for the award.

The Sooner superman leads the nation in scoring (29.2) and assists (10.2). The only other college player to reach seven such games in the past two decades is J.J. Barea of Northeastern (2002-06) with seven in 113 career games.

Young has been the breakout star of the college basketball season. It was his first career Player of the Week honor and the sixth time he had been recognized by the league as he was named Freshman of the Week five times during the 2016-17 season. Young has been named the Big 12 Player of the Week on November 13, Nov. 27, December 18, Dec. 27 and January 1. He now ranks No. 8 in both scoring (1,539 points) and rebounding (740 boards), as well as No. 4 in blocked shots (167), No. 5 in free throws made (410) and No. 6 in free throw attempts (547).

Texas A&M freshman guard Chennedy Carter was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 List, as announced on espnW.com Thursday. Baker is the last WSU player to make the mid-season list. The ten-man Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced the week of the "Elite Eight" round of the NCAA Tournament.

Voting will open prior to the start of the NCAA Tournament and will allow voters to take into consideration performance during early round games.
