UCLA Basketball’s Kyle Anderson made the John R. Wooden Award‘s Mid-Season Top 25 list. The 6’9″ point guard has been a major cog for the Bruins and is the main reason they are 14-4 this season. Per the Wooden Award website (WoodenAward.com), the candidates are:

Chosen by the Wooden Award Advisory Board, the list is comprised of 25 student-athletes who are the front-runners for the sport’s most prestigious individual honor based on their play so far this season.

Anderson is averaging 15.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game. This is contributing to UCLA’s overall offensive production as they are getting 84.4 points per game which is currently 12th in the nation. They are also 6th in the nation in assists with 17.6 per game and 5th in the nation with a .502 field goal percentage. You better believe Anderson is the main force behind all those stats.


Anderson is one of four Pac-12 players that made the Top 25. Arizona’s Aaron Gordon, Nick Johnson and Oregon’s Joseph Young join Anderson as candidates for the top honor in college basketball.
