Gransberry on preseason Wooden Award list



Kg USF senior center Kentrell Gransberry is one of 50 players named to the preseason candidates list for the John R. Wooden Award, perhaps the most coveted honor in college basketball.

Gransberry, the nation's leading returning rebounder, is one of eight Big East players on the list, joining Georgetown's Roy Hibbert and Johnathan Wallace, Louisville's Terrence Williams, Villanova's Scottie Reynolds, Marquette's Dominic James, Connecticut's Jeff Adrien and Syracuse's Eric Devendorf. The eight players is the most of any conference on the Wooden list.

The list will be pared to 30 in January, with ballots going out to voters in March. The Bulls open their season at home against Cleveland State on Nov. 9.
