Joel Embiid is not on the midseason Wooden Award watch list

The Wooden Award has released its midseason watch list, and it’s missing one of the best players in the country, Joel Embiid.

While Andrew Wiggins entered the season with all the publicity, Embiid has dominated the spotlight of late. A quick Google search of “Joel Embiid number 1 pick” turns out a page full of articles with titles such as “Freshman Joel Embiid has become Kansas’ most irreplaceable player” and “Joel Embiid the new face of the 2014 NBA Draft.”

The Wooden Award is given based on performance, whereas the draft evaluates a player’s upside. Despite that, Embiid is still a noticeable absence. However, as CBS Sports notes, he could still capture the honor even though he was left off the midseason list.

Below are the 25 players who made the cut:

  • Kyle Anderson, UCLA
  • Keith Appling, Michigan State
  • Cameron Bairstow, New Mexico
  • Jordan Clarkson, Missouri
  • Aaron Craft, Ohio State
  • Sam Dekker, Wisconsin
  • Cleanthony Early, Wichita State
  • Tyler Ennis, Syracuse
  • C.J. Fair, Syracuse
  • Aaron Gordon, Arizona
  • Rodney Hood, Duke
  • Nick Johnson, Arizona
  • DeAndre Kane, Iowa State
  • Doug McDermott, Creighton
  • Shabazz Napier, Connecticut
  • Jabari Parker, Duke
  • Adreian Payne, Michigan State
  • Casey Prather, Florida
  • Julius Randle, Kentucky
  • Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State
  • Russ Smith, Louisville
  • T.J. Warren, North Carolina State
  • Andrew Wiggins, Kansas
  • Chaz Williams, Massachusetts
  • Joseph Young, Oregon
