LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Gonzaga men's basketball's Nigel Williams-Goss was named to the John R. Wooden Award Late Season Top 20 list, announced by the Los Angeles Athletic Club, Wednesday. The award is presented to the nation's most outstanding basketball player.

Chosen by a poll of national college basketball experts, the late season list is comprised of 20 student-athletes who are front-runners for the sport's most prestigious honor, based on their performances during the first half of the 2016-17 season.

Fifteen top players who have proven to their universities that they are also making progress toward graduation and maintaining at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA will be submitted to voters on the Final Ballot prior to the NCAA Tournament. The ten-man Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced the week of the Elite Eight round of the NCAA Tournament, while the 41st annual presentation of the John R. Wooden Award to the nation's most outstanding basketball player will be the anchor presentation of the ESPN College Basketball Awards Show presented by Wendy's on ESPN2 on April 7.

Thanks for all the cool info ZN. I feel like retweeting is kind of an odd way to vote, but I guess it's easier for one vote and only one vote that way

I think the retweeting thing was an ESPN creation and will have nothing to do with the actual outcome. The important point is that Nigel is in the top 20 as voted by the Los Angeles Athletic Club. I don't know whether we'll have an opportunity to have a vote that affects the actual outcome.

Nigel's also in the running for the Cousy award for the nation's top point guard.

I hope you are right and it is a merit based award rather than who gets the most tweets. It's hard to compete with much larger schools in that regard.
