DURHAM, N.C. – The John R. Wooden Award presented by Wendy’s has announced its Late Season Top 20 Watch List, which included Duke freshmen RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson.

The nation's highest scoring duo at 45.0 points per game, Barrett and Williamson are the ACC's two leading scorers at 23.0 and 22.0 points, respectively. The tandem has helped lead No. 2 Duke to a 20-2 start, and a share of the ACC lead at 8-1.

Created in 1976, the John R. Wooden Award is the most prestigious individual honor in college basketball. It is bestowed upon the nation’s best basketball player at an NCAA Division I university who has proven to his or her university that he or she meets or exceeds the qualifications of the John R. Wooden Award as set forth by Coach Wooden and the Wooden Award Steering Committee, including making progress towards graduation and maintaining at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

Duke's five previous winners of the John R. Wooden Award are the most in college basketball history.

The Wooden Award All American Team™ will be announced the week of the “Elite Eight” round of the NCAA Tournament. The winner of the 2019 John R. Wooden Award will be presented by Wendy’s during the ESPN College Basketball Awards on Friday, April 12, 2019.
