Composed of the top 20 players who are expected to make a
run for this year's player of the year award, the midseason list is based on
individual player performance and team records midway through the women's
college basketball season.
In March, the Wooden Award Committee will pare the list down
to an official voting ballot consisting of approximately 15 players who have
proven to their universities that they are also making progress toward
graduation and maintaining a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0. Over 200
voters, comprised of sports media members and women's college basketball
experts across the nation, will then cast their votes for the five-member
All-American team and Wooden Award honor as the most outstanding female college basketball player.
The 2004 Award ceremony, which will include the presentation
of the Wooden Award All-American Team, the inaugural Women's Wooden Award and
the presentation of the Legends of Coaching Award, will be held at The Los Angeles
Athletic Club on
