Connecticut All Americans Sr Tina Charles and Jr Maya Moore today were named as two of the 2009-10 31 preseason candidates for the 2010 Women's Wooden Award. Moore won the prestigious Wooden award last season. The Huskies were one of four teams with two players on the list along with Ohio State, Stanford, and Gonzaga (yes Gonzaga!!).

The Wooden Award Committee will release the Midseason Top 20 list in late December. The National Ballot, consisting of approximately 15 top players who have proven to their universities that they are also making progress toward graduation and maintaining a cumulative 2.0 GPA, will be released in March. The Women's Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced during the week of the NCAA Elite Eight. The 34th annual Wooden Award ceremony will held during the weekend of April 9-11.
