The Wooden Mid-Season Top 25 was released on Thursday, and there were only a couple of differences between the ballots that Parrish and I submitted.
Both of us had UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad and Kentucky frosh Nerlens Noel, as well as Maryland's Alex Len on our list -- while neither of us included Duke's Seth Curry or South Dakota State's Nate Wolters. The lone difference between Parrish's ballot and mine is that he had Gonzaga's Elias Harris and I included Virginia Tech's Erick Green.
To be honest, if I had another chance, I'd probably find a spot for Indiana's Victor Oladipo. He has been the Hoosiers' MVP -- and plays both ends of the court. Gonzaga has a bunch of good players, but I'm taking Kelly Olynyk over Harris at the midway point of the season. Others who could make a legit case for being snubbed are Len, Bucknell's Mike Muscala, UCLA frosh Muhammad and Jordan Adams, Noel, Arizona State's Jahii Carson and Wyoming's Leonard Washington.
But all in all, most of the guys who should have made the cut did so. Anyway, here's the Wooden Midseason Top 25:
