LOS ANGELES— Texas A&M sophomore guard Chennedy Carter was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 Wednesday.

Carter, the NCAA’s active leader in scoring average, leads the SEC and ranks 17th nationally with 20.8 points per game this season. She has scored 10+ points in every game this season and scored 20+ points in eight of her 12 games this season. In addition to her prolific scoring, Carter is averaging 4.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

Carter was named SEC Player of the Week on Dec. 18, after earning MVP honors at the Maui Jim Maui Classic, averaging 26.5 points in the Aggies’ wins over UC Riverside and then-No. 8 Oregon State.

This is Carter’s second consecutive year on the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25, after being the only freshman named to the list last season, during Carter’s National Freshman of the Year campaign.

The Wooden Award for women's basketball was first awarded for the 2003-04 season and is given annually to the most outstanding women's college basketball player. Connecticut’s Maya Moore, who received the award in 2008-09, is the only sophomore to win the award.
