The Wooden Award Committee will announce its Top 15 candidates for the 2011-2012 award next week. I am a voter for the award and the following is a look at my Top 15 listed alphabetically. This year's Player of the Year choice is wide-open with several strong candidates, but no one has established himself as the clear cut winner in what could be the closest balloting of all-time.
