Farmar Named Wooden Award Finalist

By Bruin Basketball Report

UCLA guard Jordan Farmar was named one of twenty-two finalists for the 2005-06 Wooden Award All-American Team and Player of the Year, presented annually to the nation's top collegiate basketball player.

Earlier in January, Farmar was named a Midseason Top 30 candidate, and last August was named a Preseason Top 50 candidate for the award.

Farmar is averaging 14.0 points, 5.5 assists, and 1.1 steals per game this season.

The 10 members of the All-American Team and the Wooden Award recipient will be announced on Saturday, April 8, at the John R. Wooden Award ceremony from the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

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