Washington guard Jazmine Davis was one of 30 players selected to the John R. Wooden preseason top 30 list.
The Husky junior is one of five Pac-12 players on the list of the nation’s best players.
The Wooden Award List is comprised of 30 student-athletes who, based on last year’s individual performance and team records, are the early front-runners for college basketball’s most prestigious honor. The list is chosen by a preseason poll of national college women’s basketball media members.
Davis is coming off a sensational season where she earned All-Pac-12 honors, leading the Huskies to a 21-win season and the second round of the WNIT. Davis was second in the Pac-12 in scoring at 19.3 points per game.
Washington opens the season on Halloween night with an exhibition game vs. Concordia (Ore.) at 7 p.m. at Alaska Airlines Arena.
