FAYETTEVILLE — Chelsea Dungee was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25, announced Wednesday of players still in the running for college basketball’s most prestigious honor.
Dungee has led Arkansas’ potent offense with 19.7 points per game, the 19th-best mark in the NCAA. The redshirt junior guard recently scored her 1,000th point for the Razorbacks, needing just 49 career games to get there.
Dungee averaged 20.4 points per game over those 49 contests, which would be the highest scoring average in program history.
The Sapulpa, Okla., native has scored 20+ in eight of Arkansas’ 15 games so far this season, and dropped her seventh 30-piece for the Hogs earlier this season against Kansas State.
She continues to use her ability to get to the line to generate points, as Dungee is currently fourth in the NCAA in free throws made and sixth in attempts.
Additionally, Dungee’s 19.5 points per game in SEC only games is tied for the sixth-best average in the conference.
