There will be no repeat winner of the John R. Wooden Award at Kentucky. The 25-man midseason list was released, and it does not include any Wildcats. Last season Anthony Davis took home the trophy, while collecting myriad other accolades.
Kentucky is not represented, but the Commonwealth is. Murray State guard Isaiah Canaan was a Wooden All-American last season, a member of the nation’s top 10 players, and he remains on the list again this year. Louisville guard Russ Smith is also on the list.
There were only three freshmen who made the 25-man list: Anthony Bennett (UNLV), Ben McLemore (Kansas), and Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State).
The Southeastern Conference was nearly snubbed altogether if it weren’t for newcomer Missouri. Only two SEC players made the list, guard Phil Pressey and forward Laurence Bowers, who are both Tigers.
