Texas A&M’s Carter named to Wade watch list

By  | 

ATLANTA- Texas A&M sophomore guard Chennedy Carter was named to the Wade Watch list of candidates for the 2019 Wade Trophy, presented to the best player in women’s college basketball.

Carter, the only sophomore on the 35-player list, ranks second in the SEC with 20.7 points per game. Carter was the unanimous National Freshman of the Year in 2017-18, earning All-America, First Team All-SEC and NCAA Spokane Regional All-Tournament honors as well.

Carter has been named to the watch lists for the Naismith Trophy and Wooden Award, also presented to the nation’s top player, as well as the Lieberman Award, presented to the nation’s top point guard.

The “Wade Watch” list of candidates for the Wade Trophy is composed of players selected by the WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America Selection Committee. The committee will review the list in January to determine if additional players will be added based on their play during the first half of the 2018-19 season.

The Wade Trophy — now in its 42nd year — is the oldest national player of the year award in college women’s basketball. It is named in honor of the late, legendary Delta State head coach Lily Margaret Wade, who won three consecutive national championships with the Lady Statesmen.
