The men's and women's John R. Wooden Midseason Top 25 lists have been announced.

As the college basketball season hits its halfway point and conference play is in full swing, an updated 2019-20 John R. Wooden watch list has been released.

The Los Angeles Athletic Club announced the men's and women's Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 lists on Wednesday. The players were chosen by a poll of national college basketball experts based on the first half of the season.

The Wooden Award is considered the most prestigious honor in college basketball. In the updated lists, the men's preseason top 50 and women's top 30 have both been cut down to the 25 top candidates. Duke's Zion Williamson and Oregon's Sabrina Ionescu won the award in 2019.
