MSU's Carver Passed Over for Award

We told you Monday that Midwestern State's Savannah Carver was a finalist for an award in her hometown of Amarillo.

We can update that Tuesday, unfortunately, she did not wind up taking home the Dick Bynum Award, which went to University of Oklahoma volleyball player Brianne Barker.

The criteria for the award were athletic achievement, scholastic achievement, and positive social interaction with the community.

Carver averaged a career-high 10.5 points per game last year in her junior season, up about a half-point per game from the season before.

The other two candidates were University of Texas track/cross country star Betzy Jimenez of Hereford and Abilene Christian soccer player Andrea Carpenter of Canyon Randall HS, the same alma mater as Carver.

After Barker took her award, she spoke about growing up with the other candidates, including Carver.

"Savannah, I've grown up with her," said Barker. "We played basketball when we were really little. So it's really cool to see her grown up, and me grown up, and it's just amazing to be in the same category as these girls."

    Brazil fans have cheered their team in the first and only meeting with players before they travel to the World Cup in Russia, but many others also complained about the squad's lack of contact with local supporters.
