John R. Wooden Award® Presented By Wendy’s® Mens 2012-13 All American Team

The 10-player John R. Wooden Award All American Team was announced today by The Los Angeles Athletic Club on the ESPNU show, Katz Korner. Selected by hundreds of college basketball media members and experts from throughout the country, the All American team is made up of the 10 student-athletes who received the most votes, with voters ranking the players from 1 to 10. All players have proven to their universities that they are making progress toward graduation and are maintaining at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA, an important component of the Award insisted upon by Coach Wooden. In addition to the academic aspect, the Wooden Award is unique among college postseason awards because voters could consider performance during the first three rounds of the NCAA Tournament. The Women’s All American team will be released Wednesday.

The John R. Wooden Award Men’s Player of the Year presented by Wendy’s will be announced on ESPN during the Final Four Weekend in Atlanta. The 2013 Wooden Award Gala presented by Wendy’s will take place April 11-13, 2013, at The Los Angeles Athletic Club. The Gala will honor the Men’s and Women’s Wooden Award winners, All Americans and the Legends of Coaching Award winner, Kansas Head Coach Bill Self.

Creighton forward Doug McDermott is the only player on this year’s team who was a Wooden Award All American in 2012. He is the nation’s No. 2 scorer, at 23.2 ppg (as of March 29), and took the Bluejays to the third round of the NCAA Tournament. One Wooden All American is taking his team to the Final Four this season, Trey Burke of Michigan.

Indiana (Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller) was the only program with more than one player selected to the team. The last time a school had two Wooden All Americans was 2010, when Kentucky’s DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall were chosen. The Big Ten had four selections, followed by the ACC with two. The Big East, Missouri Valley Conference, Big 12, and the WCC had one Wooden All American in 2013.

36th John R. Wooden Award Presented To Anthony Davis Of Kentucky

New Orleans (March 31, 2012)— The John R. Wooden Award®, the preeminent men’s collegiate basketball player of the year award, was presented today on ESPN by Coach John Wooden’s grandson, Greg, on behalf of the Los Angeles Athletic Club, to University of Kentucky freshman Anthony Davis. Greg Wooden made the announcement on College GameDay and presented Davis with the Wooden Award Trophy whose unique design was inspired by Coach Wooden’s idea of the “total basketball player.” The 36th Annual Wooden Award Gala, honoring Davis and the entire Wooden All American Team, will take place Friday April 6 at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

A 6-10 forward, Davis earned college basketball’s most prestigious honor after an outstanding freshman season in which he averages 14.3 points, 10.0 rebounds and 4.6 blocks. He shoots 64.2 percent from the field and has recorded 19 double-doubles. He has led his team to a 36-2 overall record, tonight’s Final Four matchup with Louisville, and an undefeated Southeastern Conference season. He is the second freshman to win the Wooden Award; Texas’ Kevin Durant won in 2007.


A native of Chicago, Davis is the first Kentucky player to win the Wooden Award, and also the first Southeastern Conference player to be honored. Davis was the SEC Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, and Freshman of the Year. John Wall of Kentucky was a Wooden Award finalist in 2010 and was joined on the Wooden All American team by DeMarcus Cousins.

Voters include hundreds of national college basketball media who selected and ranked 10 players. Davis had 3,350 points, outdistancing second-place finisher Thomas Robinson of Kansas (3,017). Rounding out the top five were Draymond Green of Michigan State (2,825), Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger (2,425), and Tyler Zeller of North Carolina (1,793). The ten-player All American team also included in alphabetical order Isaiah Canaan, Murray State; Jae Crowder, Marquette; Marcus Denmon, Missouri; Kevin Jones, West Virginia; and Doug McDermott, Creighton.


All players proved that they are making progress toward graduation and are maintaining at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA. Voters were asked to take into account performance during the regular season and postseason through the first three rounds of the NCAA tournament, as well as a player’s character and academic performance, essential components of an outstanding player. The winner will receive a contribution from The Los Angeles Athletic Club for their university’s general scholarship fund.
In addition to honoring the Wooden All American teams next week, the “Legends of Coaching” Award will be given to University of Connecticut Head Coach Geno Auriemma. The women’s Wooden Award winner also will be announced next Friday. Previous winners include such notables as Larry Bird (’79), Michael Jordan (’84), Tim Duncan (’97), Maya Moore (’09, ’11) and Blake Griffin (’09).
Since its inception, the John R. Wooden Award has contributed close to a million dollars to universities’ general scholarship fund in the names of the All American recipients. The Award has also sent more than 1,000 underprivileged children to weeklong college basketball camps in the Award’s name.   Additionally, the John R. Wooden Award partners with Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC) each year to host the Wooden Award Special Olympics Southern California Basketball Tournament.  The tournament, which brings together Special Olympic athletes and the All Americans, takes place at The Los Angeles Athletic Club April 7.

Evan Turner of Ohio State wins 34th John R. Wooden Award

Evan Turner of Ohio State wins 34th John R. Wooden Award
Buckeye junior caps successful season with college basketball’s top honor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Friday, April 9, 2010

LOS ANGELES—Evan Turner of Ohio State is the 2010 John R. Wooden Award winner as the college basketball player of the year. The announcement was made at The Los Angeles Athletic Club this evening and streamed live on CBS College Sports Network. Blake Griffin, the 2009 Wooden Award winner who now plays for the Los Angeles Clippers, made the announcement and presented Turner with the Wooden Award trophy whose unique design was inspired by Coach Wooden’s idea of the “total basketball player.”

Turner averaged 20.4 points and 9.4 rebounds in 2010 as his Buckeye team reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament and won the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles. A 6-7 junior from Chicago Ill., he was the Big Ten Player of the Year and the Most Outstanding Player in the Big Ten Tournament. He was the conference’s top scorer and rebounder and ranked No. 2 in assists (6.0, 6th in the nation) and steals (1.7).

Balloting by more than 1,000 members of the media and college basketball experts was conducted through the weekend of the Elite Eight. Voters selected 10 players for the John R. Wooden Award All American team from the 27 student-athletes listed on the ballot, and ranked them from 1 to 10. Voters were asked to take into account performance during the regular season and postseason, as well as a player’s character and academic record. All players on the ballot were certified as maintaining a cumulative 2.0 GPA at their current school, including the most recent semester.

Turner had 3,715 points, followed by John Wall of Kentucky with 3,331 and Syracuse’s Wesley Johnson with 1,871. Turner joins a distinguished group of Wooden Award winners, including Michael Jordan (North Carolina), Ralph Sampson (Virginia), Tim Duncan (Wake Forest), Kevin Durant (Texas) and Larry Bird (Indiana State). Turner is the first Ohio State player to win the Award; Greg Oden was a finalist in 2007.

In addition to the Player of the Year Award, The Los Angeles Athletic Club also presented Florida Men’s Basketball Coach Billy Donovan with the John R. Wooden Award Legends of Coaching honor. The John R. Wooden Award in the women’s category was announced as well, and it went to Connecticut’s Tina Charles. The Award announcement caps a full day for the Wooden Award All Americans: Turner and fellow finalists John Wall (16.6 points, 6.4 assists, set the school single season assist record with 241) and Wesley Johnson (the 2010 Big East Player of the Year, 16.5 ppg, 8.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists), coached in a Special Olympics basketball tournament on the Wooden Court at the LAAC during the morning.
