Anthony Davis Leads Player of Year Race?
Even if you don’t win the Wooden Award, it’s still pretty cool to get invited to the ceremony. A trip to Los Angeles, recognition on national television, face time with some of college basketball’s current and all-time greats … the memories are the kind that last forever. So while Kansas’ Thomas Robinson and Kentucky’s Anthony Davis appear to have an insurmountable lead on the rest of the field, those third, fourth and fifth spots are important, too — and the battle for them is fierce and ever-changing. Here’s how my ballot would look if the season ended today.
Anthony Davis, Kentucky – The freshman forward and likely No. 1 pick in this summer’s NBA draft continues to dominate on both ends of the floor. He’s averaging 17.8 points and 7.5 blocks in his last two games. He’ll face his toughest test of the SEC season in Starkville on Tuesday against Mississippi State’s Arnett Moultrie and Renardo Sidney.
