Baylor center Kalani Brown is one of 20 players up for consideration for the John R. Wooden Award, given to the top player in women’s college basketball.
Brown made the cut for the Wendy’s Late Season 20 List, which pared the candidates down to the nation’s 20 best. The 6-foot-7 junior is averaging a team-best 20.2 points and 9.7 rebounds, and leads the nation in field goal percentage at 67.1 percent. She has tallied 11 double-doubles in Baylor’s 23 games.
Brown is one of two Big 12 players on the list, along with Ariel Atkins of Texas. She is also one of 10 finalists for the Lisa Leslie Award, given to the nation’s top center.
