Wooden All-American preseason list revealed



Four 2000-01 Wooden Award All-Americans -- Jason Williams of Duke, Casey Jacobsen of Stanford, Tayshaun Prince of Kentucky and Frank Williams of Illinois -- are among the 50 players on this year's preseason list of candidates for the 2002 Wooden Award All-American Team.

The top 50 Candidates were selected by a preseason poll of the media, and have been selected based on last year's individual performance and team records. The athletes selected are all returning players. Transfers and first-time Division I players are not included.

The defending national champions placed the most candidates on the list with four -- Carlos Boozer, Chris Duhon, Mike Dunleavy, Jr. and Jason Williams.

In late December, the Wooden Award committee will release the Midseason Top 30. The 10-player Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced on March 26, 2002. One member of the Wooden Award All-American Team will be selected on Sunday April 7, 2002 as the recipient of the Wooden Award Trophy as the nation's "Most Outstanding Collegiate Basketball Player of the Year".
