Four Tar Heels Lead Wooden Award List

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Harrison Barnes and three of his North Carolina teammates are among the 50 players on the Wooden Award's preseason list.

John Henson, Kendall Marshall and Tyler Zeller of the Tar Heels were also selected for the list by the Los Angeles Athletic Club on Monday.

Ohio State (Jared Sullinger, William Buford, Aaron Craft) and Vanderbilt (Festus Ezeli, John Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor) had three players chosen, while California, Connecticut, Memphis, Syracuse and UCLA all had two.

The Big East had 10 players on the list followed by the Big Ten with nine and the Southeastern Conference with seven players. The North Carolina players were the only ones from the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The 36th annual Wooden Award will be presented the weekend of April 6-8.
