Texas A&M sophomore guard Chennedy Carter was named a candidate for the 2019 Nancy Lieberman Award, given to the nation’s top point guard, and to the Women’s Citizen Naismith Trophy Midseason Team, a watch list for the player of the year in women’s college basketball, Monday.

Carter, the 2018 unanimous National Freshman of the Year, leads the SEC and ranks ninth nationally with 22.2 points per game. She has scored at least 20 points in each of the Aggies’ past six games, averaging 26.2 points per game in that span. Carter adds in 4.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.

Carter’s season has been highlighted by a game-winning shot at Auburn (Jan. 24) and earning MVP honors at the Maui Jim Maui Classic, averaging 26.5 points in the Aggies’ wins over UC Riverside (Dec. 14) and then-No. 8 Oregon State (Dec. 15).

Carter is the third straight Texas A&M point guard to be named a candidate for the Nancy Lieberman Award, joining Curtyce Knox and Jordan Jones. Carter is attempting to become the first Aggie to win the award since its inception in 2000.

Carter is on the Naismith Midseason Team for the second consecutive season after being the only freshman on the list in 2017-18. The Naismith Trophy, first given out in 2001, has seen several Aggies make the Midseason Team, including Courtney Walker (2014-15), Kelsey Bone (2012-13), Danielle Adams (2010-11) and Takia Starks (2007-08).
