Reigning winner Aliyah Boston of the South Carolina Gamecocks headlines the John R. Wooden Award late season top 20 list for the most outstanding player in women's college basketball, as announced Monday.
Boston -- whose No. 1-ranked and defending NCAA champion Gamecocks last lost in the 2022 SEC tournament championship game -- and Reese have guided their teams to unbeaten records, although they are set to face off in SEC play Feb. 12.
Many top players across the nation -- including UConn's Azzi Fudd, Indiana's Grace Berger, Ohio State's Jacy Sheldon and NC State's Diamond Johnson -- missed time this season due to injury and are not on the late season top 20.
The Wooden Award All-American team will be announced the week of the Elite Eight, while the winner will be presented in April following the NCAA tournament's conclusion.
