Iowa's Gustafson named to Wooden Award Top 25

Maten, who is the SEC's active career leader in points, rebounds, blocks and double-doubles, was one of two league players on the 25-player Wooden ledger. Inclusion on the list means that Bridges is among the frontrunners for the award, but the award victor does not need to be on the midseason top 25. The award is bestowed upon the nation's best basketball player at an NCAA Division I university who has proven to his university that he is making progress towards graduation and maintaining a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA. Previous winners include Larry Bird (1979), Michael Jordan ('1984), Tim Duncan (1997), Kevin Durant (2007) and Blake Griffin (2009).

Michigan State has never had a player win the Wooden Award since it was created in 1976. The Big 12 and the Pac-12 conference each have three players apiece make the list. She averages 22.7 points and 12.6 rebounds per game.

Players must have a 2.0 grade-point average to be considered.

Since Trump chose to end DACA in September, lawmakers have been working to find a deal on the issue. Trump on Tuesday held a lengthy meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on immigration.

Maten has scored in double figures in 14 of the Bulldogs' 15 games, with seven 20-point outputs and seven double-doubles. Gustafson is now ranked in the top-15 nationally in 10 categories. On Dec. 15, she set the Texas A&M record with 46 points, including the game-winning shot, at Southern California.

The ACC and the Big East each have five players on the list. He has also earned Big 12 Newcomer of the Week on November 20 and December 4.

Voting will open prior to the start of the NCAA Tournament.
