The Los Angeles Athletic Club announced its Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 list today and the California Golden Bears are well represented.
Senior guard Jorge Gutierrez and Sophomore guard Allen Crabbe are two of the four players from the Pac-12.
In 2010-2011, Gutierrez averaged 14.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists per game, and was named to the 1st Team All-Conference Team.
Crabbe averaged 13.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and was named the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year.
The Bears are ranked No. 21 in Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook's preseason top 25, and are considered by many the favorite to win the inaugural Pac-12 title.
Drew Gordon, who played his high school basketball for Archbishop Mitty in San Jose and attended UCLA for one plus season before transferring to New Mexico, and Reeves Nelson of UCLA, who played for Modesto Christian High School, are also on the Wooden Award preseason list.
