CHICAGO -- The Los Angeles Athletic Club has announced its John R. Wooden Award Women’s Preseason Top 30 today, which is comprised of 30 student-athletes who, based on last year’s individual performance and team records, are the early front-runners for college basketball’s most prestigious honor. The list is chosen by a preseason poll of national college women’s basketball media members.

Transfers, freshmen and medical redshirts are not eligible for the Preseason Top 30. These players and others who excel throughout the season will be evaluated and considered for January’s midseason list and the official voting ballot released in March. The National Ballot consists of 20 top players who have proven to their universities that they are also making progress toward graduation and maintaining at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA.  The Wooden Award All American Team, consisting of the nation’s top five players, will be announced the week of the Final Four.

Anna Martin enters her senior season after leading the BIG EAST Conference in scoring with 19.1 points per game which also ranked 25th in Division I a year ago.  This season she is a unanimous preseason All-BIG EAST Selection and is also on the State Farm Wade Trophy Watch List.  Last season the Lexington, Ky. native was also an honorable mention Associated Press All-American.

The BIG EAST Conference led all conferences with seven selections, followed by the ACC with six, the Big 12 and Big 10 with five each, the SEC, Pac-12 and CAA with two, and the Ivy League with one.

DePaul begins its 2012-13 season at 5:30 p.m. tonight when it hosts Nicholls State in the second game of the Maggie Dixon Classic.
