Rank 'Em: Player of the Year

Created: August 14, 2009, 9:17 AM

Who is the early favorite for National Player of the Year?

The John Wooden Award, annually given to the best college basketball players in the nation, is not always an indicator of NBA success. For every Michael Jordan, there's a J.J. Redick or Ed O'Bannon counterbalancing the scales. Still, winning the award is indicative of some major hoops chops.

This year's crop of candidates will have their work cut out for them. Andy Katz has selected his best of the best out of all the top scorers, rebounders and defensive stalwarts in the game. Will Luke Harangody's decision to wait on the NBA draft pay off? Will Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich steal votes from one another in Kansas? Submit your rankings now!
