The Melburnian has been an nearly unstoppable force in the paint so far this season, averaging a double-double that comprises of a career-best 21.3 points and 10.2 rebounds per game, while also shooting an impressive 63.8% from the field. He ranks in the top-10 of Oklahoma freshman season totals, including assists, three-pointers and points.

Maten, who is the SEC's active career leader in points, rebounds, blocks and double-doubles, was one of two league players on the 25-player Wooden ledger. On Dec. 15, she set the Texas A&M record with 46 points, including the game-winning shot, at Southern California. Since the NCAA began recording assists in 1983, Young is the only freshman to dish out 20 or more assists in a game.

Through the first few months of the season, the sport has seen some big upsets, players making a name for themselves and right now the field might be as open as it has ever been. He has also earned Big 12 Newcomer of the Week on November 20 and December 4.
