Los Angeles - The John R. Wooden Award Midseason Top 30 was announced today by The Los Angeles Athletic Club and Washington junior guard Isaiah Thomas was on the list.

Thomas, from Tacoma, Wash., is averaging 15.5 points and 4.2 assists per game. He ranks second in the Pac-10 in assists per game and sixth in scoring. In addition, he is fourth among Pac-10 players with an assist to turnover ratio of 1.8 (55 assists/30 turnovers).

Currently, Thomas ranks 16th all-time on the UW scoring list with 1,335 points. He was a 2010 Pac-10 All-First Team member and was the 2009 conference freshman of the year.

Joining Thomas on the midseason list from the Pac-10 are Washington State's Klay Thompson and Arizona's Derrick Williams.

Selected by the Wooden Award National Advisory Board, the list is made up of 30 student-athletes who, based on their performances in November and December, are the early frontrunners for college basketball's most prestigious honor.

Transfers, freshmen and medical redshirts are eligible for this midseason list but did not appear on the preseason Top 50. All players nationally who excel throughout the season will be evaluated and considered for the official voting ballot released in March.

The National Ballot consists of approximately 20 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.

The Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced the week of the "Elite Eight" round during the NCAA Tournament, making it unique among college postseason awards.
