Odyssey Sims (Baylor), Hallie Christofferson (Iowa State) and Aaryn Ellenberg (Oklahoma) have been named to the John R. Wooden Award Women’s Preseason Top 30 by the Los Angeles Athletic Club.
The list is comprised of 30 student-athletes who, based on last year’s individual performance and team records, are the early front-runners for college basketball’s most prestigious honor. The honorees are chosen by a preseason poll of national college women’s basketball media members.
Sims was a Wooden Award All-American last year.
Players not chosen to the preseason team are eligible for both the midseason team and the National Ballot. The National Ballot consists of 20 top players who have proven to their universities that they are also making progress toward graduation and maintaining at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA. The Wooden Award All American Team, consisting of the nation’s top five players, will be announced the week of the Final Four.
