As much as I love UK, I have to give this award to Thomas Robinson. UK has studs at every position, but Thomas Robinson has carried Kansas the entire year and they wouldn't even be a top 25 team without him.

You know Kentucky beat Kansas easily this year right? They may lose in the tourney but it won't be to Kansas.

if you have 2 wooden finalits you should win the title, but somehow the cats will lose a game in th big dance. some team will play the best game they can, the cats will be going yhrough the motions, and they cant bring it back. to me the odd of that happening are greater than 50-50. that could happen if they have to play ku. that is if ku doesnt lose to a scrub tm before that, which is really ikely to happen.

Anthony Davis is a stud.  He is really learning and becoming more dominant as the season progresses.  After playing in one of the weakest leagues in Illinois High School basketball I really didn't expect him to be so good.  I hope that he doesn't become another of Kentucky's one and done players.  If he sticks around he can learn so much more and become more polished and dominant.  Though he is bigger, Davis reminds me of Xavier McDaniel and he can probably pull the Xavier McDaniel scoring/rebounding double in about 2 years with more seasoning.  Kentucky has enough talent that other teams can't focus on Davis.

As far as the Wooden Award is concerned, I believe that Tyler Zeller is the player who best exemplifies the characteristics that are supposed to be part of the Wooden Award.  He is a great player and has the academic credentials that some of the other players on this list can't come close to matching.
