This list is composed of the top 30 players in the nation that will compete for the season's player of the year award. The midseason list is based on individula player performance and team records during the first half of the season
"Perhaps more than any other year, the Midseason Selection Committee had an incredibly difficult task narrowing the list to 30 players," said Duke Llewellyn, Wooden Award chairman in a media release. "10 players that were not on the preseason list, made the midseason list; an incredible number that shows players across the nation stepped up and made a case for themselves. We look forward to watching this group of amazing athletes as we determine the top candidates for the Wooden Award All-American Team."
Nine NCAA conferences are represented on the list, including the ACC, BIG TEN, Big 12, Big East, Conference USA, Pac-10, SEC, Western Athletic Conference and the Horizon League.
Brooks, a senior is currently the leading scorer in the Pac-10 conference at a 19.1 points per game average. In a thrilling 77-74 overtime victory against Washington State last Saturday night, Brooks scored 31 points to lead the Ducks to their 19th win of the season. Oregon has only lost two games this year and is in first place in the Pac-10 race.
Oregon will face No. 3 ranked UCLA in Los Angeles on Thursday night with first place in the conference at stake. UCLA is 18-2. Both teams are 7-2 in the conference, but Oregon has a slightly better overall winning percentage (.905) than UCLA (.900) due to playing one more game.
