Four Tar Heels On Wooden Award Preseason List


HENSON #31, BARNES #40 DUNKING
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, four University of North Carolina Tar Heels were named to the Wooden Award's preseason list.  A harbinger for another National Championship...?

Heels Harrison Barnes, John Henson, Kendall Marshall and Tyler Zeller were all named to the list by the Los Angeles Athletic Club.  Oddly, nobody (read that NOBODY) from Duke was on the list…and NOBODY from another ACC school is on the list either.

Yike.  That's not good.

Ohio State (Jared Sullinger, William Buford, Aaron Craft) and Vanderbilt (Festus Ezeli, John Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor) had three players chosen, while California, Connecticut, Memphis, Syracuse and UCLA all had two.

The Big East had 10 players on the list (a combined three from ACC soon-to-be’s Pitt and Syracuse) followed by the Big Ten with nine and the Southeastern Conference with seven players.

The most interesting name on the list?  How about:  Keith Wright of Harvard.  The 6-8, 240 lbs forward from Suffolk, VA was the 2010-11 Ivy League Player of the Year.
