A Pair of Wildcats make the Preseason Wooden Award Watch List


Another day, another “watch list” filled with Kentucky Wildcats.

Hamidou Diallo and Kevin Knox are two of 50 players to make the preseason watch list for the John R. Wooden Award.  College basketball’s most prestigious award is given each year to the best player in America by the Los Angeles Athletic Club.  The winner will be announced on ESPN the Friday after the college basketball season concludes on April 6.

Kentucky is one of just seven schools with multiple players on the list.  If Knox or Diallo takes home the hardware, it will be just the second time a Wildcat has won the award, following Anthony Davis’ 2012 campaign.  Last year Malik Monk made the ten-man Wooden All-American Team.
