Wooden Award Women’s Midseason Top 20 Release

Los Angeles (January 17, 2014)— The Los Angeles Athletic Club has announced its John R. Wooden Award Women’s Midseason Top 20 today, comprised of 20 student-athletes who, based on individual performance and team records, are the front-runners for college basketball’s most prestigious individual honor.
