LOS ANGELES -- Washington guard Jazmine Davis was one of 30 named to the John R. Wooden Preseason Top 30 List. The Husky junior is one of five Pac-12 players on the list of the best player from around the country.
The Wooden Award List is comprised of 30 student-athletes who, based on last year’s individual performance and team records, are the early front-runners for college basketball’s most prestigious honor. The list is chosen by a preseason poll of national college women’s basketball media members.
Davis is coming off a sensational sophomore season where she earned All-Pac-12 honors, leading the Dawgs to a 21-win season and the second round of the WNIT. Davis was second in the Pac-12 in scoring at 19.3 points per game, while leading the conference in minutes.
The San Jose, Calif., native is Washington's all-time leading scorer through two seasons with 1,113 points. She became the second-fastest Husky to reach 1,000 points last season, needing just one more game than Husky legend Jamie Redd.
Davis is being named to the Wooden Watch List for the first time. She was the 2012 Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and now a two-time First Team All-Pac-12 player.Washingon opens the 2013-14 season on Halloween night with an exhibition game against Concordia (Ore.) at 7 p.m. at the Alaska Airlines Arena. The Dawgs begin the regular season at St. Mary's on November 8 at 6 p.m.
