My Wooden Award preseason Top 50 ballot

I just filed my preseason Top 50 ballot for the Wooden Award.

If you're not familiar, only players who are returning to a Division I team are eligible for the preseason Top 50, which is another way of saying that Division I transfers, junior college transfers and incoming freshmen are not allowed. However, any deserving new players will be eligible for the midseason list. So stay tuned and get ready to add DeMar DeRozan, Jrue Holiday and a handful of other elite newcomers.

Anyway, here's my ballot:

(players are listed in alphabetical order)

  • Jeff Adrien (Connecticut)
  • James Anderson (Oklahoma State)
  • DeJuan Blair (Pittsburgh)
  • Jon Brockman (Washington)
  • Derrick Brown (Xavier)
  • Chase Budinger (Arizona)
  • Nick Calathes (Florida)
  • Dionte Christmas (Temple)
  • Earl Clark (Louisville)
  • Sherron Collins (Kansas)
  • Darren Collison (UCLA)
  • Lee Cummard (BYU)
  • Stephen Curry (Davidson)
  • Austin Daye (Gonzaga)
  • Devan Downey (South Carolina)
  • Wayne Ellington (North Carolina)
  • Jonny Flynn (Syracuse)
  • Blake Griffin (Oklahoma)
  • Tyler Hansbrough (North Carolina)
  • Luke Harangody (Notre Dame)
  • James Harden (Arizona State)
  • Gerald Henderson (Duke)
  • Jordan Hill (Arizona)
  • Lester Hudson (UT-Martin)
  • Robbie Hummel (Purdue)
  • Stefon Jackson (UTEP)
