The Wooden Award midseason watch list was released Wednesday, Jan. 22, and that means it's that time of the year to make a lot of LOUD NOISES about who is not on the list.
Last year, Victor Oladipo somehow didn't make it, but the committee righted its wrong and had him on the next watch list.
The worst snubs are listed down below, and I would put all seven in the top 25.
But let's be honest, everyone is competing for runner-up this year. Here's how they rank behind the inevitable winner. (In case you've been sleeping through the season, I'll spare you the spoiler.)
Biggest Snubs: Joel Embiid, Kansas; Nik Stauskas, Michigan; Roy Devyn Marble, Iowa; Xavier Thames, San Diego State; Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati; Gary Harris, Michigan State; Lamar Patterson, Pittsburgh.
