Wooden Award Provided by Wendy’s midseason top 25 list for 2022-23 that was released Wednesday.

Purdue to the AP No. 1 ranking, Gonzaga’s Drew Timme (22.7 PPG, 8.3 RPG), who has actually put up the best numbers of his profession and Kansas star Jalen Wilson(20.6 PPG, 8.4 RPG ), who has actually placed the Jayhawks to chase after a front runner and possibly safeguard their nationwide title.A couple of mid-major stars made the list, consisting of Detroit Mercy’s Antoine Davis(3,103 career points, 7th all-time),

who is projected to end up the year ranked 2nd all-time in scoring in Department I history, and Jordan”Jelly”Walker(25.2 PPG ), the UAB star leading the nation in scoring.Houston star Marcus Sasser and other upperclassmen occupy the bulk of the slots on the midseason list.
