Hoosier trio included on Wooden Award Top 50 list #iubb

More recognition has arrived for a trio of Hoosiers.

Senior guard Yogi Ferrell, junior forward Troy Williams and sophomore guard James Blackmon Jr. were each named to the John R. Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 list on Tuesday.

The Wooden Award is given annually to college basketball’s most outstanding player. Indiana and Kentucky lead the way with three players apiece named to the top 50 list. In early January, 25 players will be selected to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 list.

Ferrell and Blackmon were each named to the Big Ten’s preseason all-conference team, while USA Today has also recognized Ferrell as a Second Team All-American.


  1. Yeah. What’s up with that? The Hoosiers soundly beat a ranked team to start off the season and no one can comment.
