Gransberry on preseason Wooden Award list
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.
