Seton Hall senior guard Jeremy Hazell was named to the John R. Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 list on Monday by the Los Angeles Athletic Club.
The award traditionally goes to the nation's top collegiate basketball player.
Hazell was named second-team All-Big East last year, after averaging 20.4 points per game. He averaged 22.7 points per game as a sophomore.
He is also the Big East's active scoring leader, with 1,789 career points. Hazell enters his senior season with a legitimate chance to break Terry Dehere's all-time Seton Hall scoring record of 2,494 career points.
