The Wooden Award is given to the most outstanding college men’s basketball player in the country. Culver makes his debut on the award’s midseason watch list, not being included on the list prior to the season.

Culver is second on the Mountaineers in scoring, averaging 13.8 points per game while leading the team with 10.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks. Culver has six double-doubles this season, including a 22-point, 19-rebound performance in WVU’s most recent game against Oklahoma State on Monday.

Other Big 12 players on the list include Baylor’s Jared Butler and Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham.
