Strong freshman and sophomore performances on one of this year’s NCAA Final Four teams has secured Jarrett Culver a place in history at Texas Tech University.
Although the Red Raiders lost their NCAA championship bid on Monday, Culver can still hold his head high, thanks to a string of on-court achievements. His exemplary performance on the court over the last past two years led the New York Post to dub him the team’s “star.”
According to his college bio, during his freshman year the Lubbock native averaged 11.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. After that, the accolades were quick: 2019 Big 12 Player of the Year, NABC All-America 3rd Team, a finalist for both the John R. Wooden and Jerry West awards.
The stats back up his award history. He single-handedly scored 30 points in the game against Abilene Christian back in 2018 (including 12 field goals) and landed 16 rebounds against the Iowa State Buckeyes back in January. He also scored seven free throws against Gonzaga during a playoff game on March 30.
With these statistics, it’s no wonder the NY Post article hailed him as a “potential top-five NBA draft pick.”
