Sophomore UCLA guard Jordan Farmar was named a 2005-06 Midseason Top 30 candidate for the John R. Wooden Award presented to the top college basketball player of the year.

In August last year, Farmar was named a 2005-06 Preseason Top 50 candidate for the award.

Farmar is averaging 13.4 points and leads the Pac-10 in assists with 5.9 per game.

Past John R. Wooden Award winners include two Bruins: Marques Johnson (1977) and Ed O'Bannon (1995).
