Elias Harris lands on preseason Wooden Award list

Charles Leclaire-US PRESSWIRE

Gonzaga's Elias Harris was named to the preseason Wooden Award list on Thursday.

Gonzaga senior forward Elias Harris was one of 50 players named to the preseason Wooden Award list on Thursday.

The Wooden Award is given to the most outstanding player in college basketball. This was the third straight season Harris has been named to the preseason list. The 6'8 senior averaged 13.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per game last season. He is one of just nine players on the list who were also included on last season's preseason list.

Harris increased his scoring and rebounding last season, and his 8.5 rebounds per game were a new career-high. Harris proved to be a threat from the outside as well, making 41.4 percent of his three-point attempts. Harris is also considered to be one of the favorites to win the WCC Player of the Year.

Wooden Award candidates are chosen by a poll of national college basketball media members. The players are chosen based on both individual and team performance from last season.
