Miles Bridges Selected to Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 List

Players on the list are considered strong candidates for the Women's National Player of the Year honor.

Kansas senior guard Devonte Graham is also on the midseason list, which is topped by Oklahoma freshman guard Trae Young.

His 17.6 point scoring average is a career-high, while he's also right around his career average of three assists per game.

Saints' Cameron Jordan gives Cam Newton trolling gift
Newton was hit high and, after attempting to get off the field on his own, dropped to a knee where he was helped by trainers. I get that "sustained vertical instability" is a mouthful, but "stumbling or falling to the ground" ought to clear that up.

Four players for No. 1 UConn are on the midseason top-25 list for the women's John R. Wooden Award. Shamet is shooting 55 percent from the floor and 85 percent from the foul line. The sophomore has score double-figures in all 10 games played and has set new career highs in both rebounds and assists with nine apiece.

With numerous player of the year accolades in the preseason, combined with the fact that Michigan State has been ranked in the top 5 most of the year, it's not much of a surprise that sophomore Miles Bridges made the cut.

The Legends of Coaching Award will be presented during the 4th Annual ESPN College Basketball Awards presented by Wendy's, which will take place on Friday, April 6, 2018. He now ranks No. 8 in both scoring (1,539 points) and rebounding (740 boards), as well as No. 4 in blocked shots (167), No. 5 in free throws made (410) and No. 6 in free throw attempts (547). Young is second overall behind former Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin - he finished with six nods during his time as a Sooner. The leading candidates will be further pared to 20 top players in early February. Voting will be open prior to the start of the NCAA Tournament and continue through the first weekend of the tournament. The ten-man Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced the week of the "Elite Eight" round of the NCAA Tournament.
