Jared Sullinger makes my early Wooden Award list

Posted Dec 28, 2011


I am one of the voters who helps to determine the preseason Top 50 for the John R. Wooden Award Committee. The cutdown to the midseason top 30 will come out next month, so I thought it was a good time to make my early list available. In the spirit of the holidays, I list 36 players in alphabetical order, which means I will have to eliminate six players soon.
