Wooden Award releases midseason list; Joel Embiid snubbed?
The Wooden Award released its midseason list of 25 players on Wednesday.
The Wooden Award released its midseason list of 25 players on Wednesday, and most of the usual suspects are on the list.
Creighton’s Doug McDermott is the favorite heading into the final six weeks of the season, but the talk of the sport for the past two weeks has been Kansas big man Joel Embiid. And perhaps surprisingly, the freshman from Cameroon was not including among the 25 players on the midseason list.
Of course, that doesn’t mean he can’t make a run at the award or win it: Victor Oladipo finished second last season after not being on the midseason list. Trey Burke won the award.
Here’s the complete list:
- Kyle Anderson, UCLA
- Keith Appling, Michigan State
- Cameron Bairstow, New Mexico
- Jordan Clarkson, Missouri
- Aaron Craft, Ohio State
- Sam Dekker, Wisconsin
- Cleanthony Early, Wichita State
- Tyler Ennis, Syracuse
- C.J. Fair, Syracuse
- Aaron Gordon, Arizona
- Rodney Hood, Duke
- Nick Johnson, Arizona
- DeAndre Kane, Iowa State
- Doug McDermott, Creighton
- Shabazz Napier, Connecticut
- Jabari Parker, Duke
- Adreian Payne, Michigan State
- Casey Prather, Florida
- Julius Randle, Kentucky
- Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State
- Russ Smith, Louisville
- T.J. Warren, North Carolina State
- Andrew Wiggins, Kansas
- Chaz Williams, Massachusetts
- Joseph Young, Oregon
