Kansas senior guard Danielle McCray was one of 31 players named on Thursday as a preseason candidate for the 2009-2010 John R. Wooden Award. The Wooden Award, which will be given to a women’s basketball player for the seventh year, is the NCAA’s award for the most outstanding player.
McCray, who led the team last season with 21.6 ppg and 7.7 rpg, is the first ever Kansas player to receive a preseason nomination for the award.
“It is a great honor to be chosen as a Wooden Award preseason candidate,” said McCray, who earned Honorable Mention All-America honors last season. “I have a great amount of respect for all of the players on the list, as well as for Coach Wooden, so to even be considered is a great feeling.”
