    Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham, Iowa’s Luka Garza and Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert highlight the Wooden Award Late Season Top 20.

    The Big Ten leads all conferences with seven selections on the list, followed by the Big East and WCC with three each, the ACC and Big 12 with two selections, and Conference USA, Pac-12, and American with one selection apiece.

    Gonzaga has three players on the list with Kispert, Jalen Suggs and Drew Timme.

    The players on the list are considered strong candidates for the 2021 John R. Wooden Award Men’s Player of the Year presented by Wendy’s. Players not chosen to the late season list are still eligible for the Wooden Award™ National Ballot. The winner of the 2021 John R. Wooden Award will be presented by Wendy’s following the NCAA Tournament in April.
