The freshman is considered by many to be the frontrunner for the award. On Dec. 15, she set the Texas A&M record with 46 points, including the game-winning shot, at Southern California. Gustafson is one of five Big Ten student-athletes to garner five Player of the Week awards in a single season. Young has been named the Big 12 Player of the Week on November 13, Nov. 27, December 18, Dec. 27 and January 1. A five-star recruit according to 247Sports, ESPN, Rivals and Scout, Young is the fourth McDonald's All-American from the state of Oklahoma to play for OU, joining Sooner legends Blake Griffin, Wayman Tisdale and Jeff Webster. There also are several teammates among the top 25: Duke's Grayson Allen and Bagley; Arizona's Ayton and Allonzo Trier; Villanova's Mikal Bridges and Jalen Brunson; and North Carolina's Luke Maye and Joel Berry II.

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

The award's advisory board will trim its list to 15 candidates in late February.
