CREATED Oct 3, 2011

The Wooden Award, which recognizes the top collegiate basketball player in the country,  has revealed its list of 50 finalists. On the pre-season list is Marquette Senior guard, Darius Johnson-Odom and Wisconsin Senior guard, Jordan Taylor.

Johnson-Odom will be the Golden Eagles leading returning scorer at 15.8 points per game last season. He has an incredible shot fake, quick first step, and outstanding touch from behind the arc.

Taylor, the leader of the Badgers offense, paced the scoring with 18.1 points per game combines with 4.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists. He rarely makes mistakes and has a knack for hitting clutch shots when the game is on the line.

It will be interesting to watch the draft stock of each player as the season rolls on.
