Preseason Wooden Award Top-50

The Wooden Award, college basketball’s highest individual honor, released it’s list of the Top-50 players in the 2009-10 season.  There are a ton of good players on this list and I would imagine we will see a freshmen or two on the final list.Luke Harangody

Notre Dame’s Senior Forward, Luke Harangody, looks to be the early favorite to win the award.  Here are seven of my “need-to-know” that we will need to pay attention to throughout the season.

  1. Manny Harris, Michigan Guard
  2. Luke Babbit, Nevada Forward
  3. Matt Bouldin, Gonzaga Guard
  4. E’Twaun Moore, Purdue Guard
  5. Tasmin Mitchell, LSU Guard
  6. Craig Brackins, Iowa State Forward
  7. Evan Turner, OSU Forward

One thought on “Preseason Wooden Award Top-50”

  1. Watch out for Isaiah Thomas, the little man had an excellent freshman year and can only get better. I also have to give some love to another little guard from Kansas, Sherron Collins, who had some brilliant performances in the NCAA Tourney and throughout the regular season. Finally I think a major sleeper will be Willie Warren. He could’ve been a lottery pick for the NBA but decided to stay (smart choice for him). I think these three players will get some definite consideration among the obvious choices like Harongody and Aminu.
