We Congratulate University Of Kentucky's Anthony Davis For Winning The Los Angeles Athletic Club's John R. Wooden Award For National Player Of The Year. Way To Go, Spiderman!

Anthony Davis becomes UK’s first Wooden Award winner

It’s hard to believe with all of the All-Americans and future professional stars that have played basketball at the University of Kentucky that it never has had a player win the most prestigious player of the year award.

But now it has. Today, the Los Angeles Athletic Club announced that Anthony Davis has won the John R. Wooden award for National Player of the Year.

Davis won the AP player of the year award on Friday, and also has been named player of the year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches and received the Adolph Rupp Trophy.
