Finalists for top player named
LOS ANGELES — Trey Burke of Final Four-bound Michigan and Indiana teammates Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller were among 10 players selected to the John R. Wooden All-American team on Monday.
The Wooden Award for the college basketball player of the year will be announced this weekend at the Final Four in Atlanta. The winner will be honored at the Los Angeles Athletic Club on April 12.
Doug McDermott of Creighton is the only repeat honoree from last year. Oladipo and Zeller are the first teammates to be honored in the same year since 2010, when DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall of Kentucky were on the team.
The rest of the Wooden team is: Shane Larkin of Miami; Ben McLemore of Kansas; Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga; Mason Plumlee of Duke; Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown; and Deshaun Thomas of Ohio State.
The Wooden team is chosen by media covering college basketball. The voting deadline came after the first three rounds of the NCAA tournament.
