On the men's side, Kansas senior Devonte' Graham and Creighton senior Marcus Foster are among the 25.

Landale is arguably the best centre in college basketball right now, and is joined by Seton Hall's Angel Delgado as one of only two centres named on the list.

Young is one of four from the Big 12 and one of five freshmen who are midseason candidates for the award.

The final vote will include almost 1,000 voters who will rank in order their 10 top players from the list of 15. Since the NCAA began recording assists in 1983, Young is the only freshman to dish out 20 or more assists in a game.


He also made Big 12 history after becoming the first freshman to earn five Player of the Week awards. Young has been named the Big 12 Player of the Week on November 13, Nov. 27, December 18, Dec. 27 and January 1.

Young came to OU after averaging 42.6 points, 4.1 assists and 5.8 rebounds during his senior year at Norman North High School - just three miles from the heart of the OU campus.

In leading the Gaels in scoring and rebounding, the 6'11 centre has been recognised for his outstanding play by being named to the 2018 John R Wooden Award mid-season Top 25. Former Sooner players Blake Griffin and Buddy Hield won the award in 2009 and 2016, respectively. The announcement was made by ESPNW and the Wooden Award on Thursday.

Players not chosen to the preseason list are eligible for the Wooden Award midseason list, late season list, and the National Ballot.
