Cole Aldrich makes Wooden preseason Top 50 list

Posted Aug 24, 2009


The John R. Wooden Award Preseason Committee recently announced their early list of the top 50 players in the country. I am one of the voters who helps to determine the preseason Top 50. James Anderson of Oklahoma State, Ryan Thompson from Rider and Mike Rosario of Rutgers were on my list, but failed to make the Top 50.

The ten player Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced at the end of March and the Wooden Award winner will be named in April.
