Iowa's Gustafson named to Wooden Award Top 25

Young came to OU after averaging 42.6 points, 4.1 assists and 5.8 rebounds during his senior year at Norman North High School - just three miles from the heart of the OU campus. She averages 22.7 points and 12.6 rebounds per game.

Michigan State sophomore forward Miles Bridges was named as the preseason national player of the year by almost every major college basketball publication.

The Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 list will be featured on ESPN2 tonight at 12 a.m. Bridges is sixth in the Big Ten Conference scoring, ninth in rebounding, 16th in blocks and leads the league in free-throw percentage (89 percent).

Now, halfway through the year, he's among the frontrunners for one of the sport's major awards. Gustafson is now ranked in the top-15 nationally in 10 categories. No player in recorded NCAA history has finished a season leading the country in both scoring and assists.

Vic Fangio expected to return as Bears defensive coordinator
Fangio arrived in Chicago from San Francisco, where he spent four seasons as the 49ers defensive coordinator. Indications were that the Bears stepped up to make Fangio one of the highest-paid coordinators in the NFL.

The only sophomore to win the Wooden Award, according to ESPN, was Connecticut's Maya Moore in 2009.

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 Wooden Award for women's basketball was first given for the 2003-04 season.

Gustafson and the 17th-ranked Hawkeyes return to action on Saturday, hosting Purdue in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for youth, and free for UI students.
