Sophomore guard Jarrett Culver has been selected to the John R. Wooden National Ballot, the Los Angeles Athletic Club announced Saturday, March 9. The award recognizes the most outstanding college basketball player in the country. 

Culver is scoring the most points for Tech with 17.9 per game and also leads with 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists, according to a Tech Athletics news release. The sophomore guard has scored at least 20 or more points in eight games this season and has secured three double-doubles. 

The guard from Lubbock is the third Red Raider in the last three years that has been on the John. R. Wooden National Ballot. Last season Keenan Evans landed himself on the ballot and the year before Jarrius Jackson was nominated, according to the release.
