The John R. Cesc Fabregas Jersey . Wooden Award, presented to the nations best college basketball player, released its first watch list on Tuesday.The preseason list includes 50 names, but it should be noted that players not on the current list can be added as the season progresses and the best players are revealed.They range from those who arent household names, such as Davidsons Jack Gibbs and Valparaisos Alec Peters, to players who have been around a while, such as Kansas Frank Mason III and Virginias London Perrantes.A front-runner to consider this season may be Duke junior guard Grayson Allen, who was the leading vote-getter in the Associated Press preseason All-America team after averaging 21.6 points last season. Close behind Allen is California sophomore forward Ivan Rabb, who averaged 12.5 points and 8.6 rebounds last season.It should be noted that maintaining at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average is factored into the award. Thats what kept LSUs?Ben Simmons?off the final ballot last season.The Wooden Award will announce a midseason top 25 in January and a late-season top 20 in February before producing its final ballot in March. The winner will be announced in April.Here are a few breakdowns of the preseason list:* Judging by the class breakdown of the list, this season wont be the year of the senior. Last season the Wooden Award race was close between seniors Buddy Hield (Oklahoma) and Denzel Valentine (Michigan State)?and had 26 seniors on the preseason top 50. This year the number of seniors, while the most of any class, dropped to 16. That includes defending national champion Villanovas contributions to the list with Kris Jenkins and Josh Hart.* Freshmen picked up the most spots this year, going from seven in 2015 to 12. A few have already made splashes, such as Washingtons Markelle Fultz, who had 30 points, seven rebounds and six assists in his debut.* The sophomore and junior classes contributed 11 players each.* Five players named to the preseason top 50 are making repeat appearances, having also been on it to begin last season: Dukes Allen; Indianas James Blackmon Jr.; Wisconsins Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig; and Marylands Melo Trimble.* Several players who have yet to take the court this season form the injured reserve section of the list: Dukes Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum and Oregons Dillon Brooks are still trying to become healthy enough to play.* Players from 10 schools comprise exactly half the list with Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Oregon and Wisconsin each represented by three players apiece. Last year, Kentucky and Indiana were the only schools with three players each.* The ACC leads all conferences with 12 players selected, and its eight different schools represented also were the most among all conferences. The Big Ten matched its selections from last year and had 10 players from seven different schools, which was second most among conferences in both categories. Danny Drinkwater Jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. Jorginho Jersey . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. http://www.chelseafcproshop.com/ . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. TORONTO -- Mariners hitting coach Edgar Martinez is away from the team this weekend so he can watch friend and former teammate Ken Griffey Jr. be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday.Seattles batters seem be faring just fine without him.Hisashi Iwakuma pitched six innings to win his fifth straight start, Nelson Cruz hit his ninth career grand slam and homered twice, and the Mariners matched a season high with 19 hits Saturday in a 14-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.Cruz hit his slam off R.A. Dickey in the third, and had a three-run drive off Drew Storen in the eighth for his 20th career multi-homer game. He has 25 home runs this season, the fourth-highest total in the AL.We miss Edgar and we showed him that we miss him, Cruz joked.It was the 13th time in team history a Mariners player has had seven RBI. The team record is eight by Mike Blowers, Mike Cameron and Alvin Davis.Over his final four at-bats, Cruz came to the plate with 10 runners on base in front of him. The only time in that stretch he didnt have runners on was when he flied out to open the fifth.I dont remember the last time I had that many runners on base, Cruz said. Its always nice to have that chance and to deliver in those situations.Kyle Seager hit a two-run homer and Nori Aoki had two RBI and scored twice to help the Mariners win their third straight, a streak that began with Wednesdays walkoff win over the White Sox.Hopefully, that was the wake-up call we need, Cruz said.Iwakuma (11-6) allowed two runs and four hits.Unbeaten since June 22 at Detroit, he is 5-0 with a 2.50 ERA in his past five outings and 10-2 in 12 starts since May 20.Hes been our most consistent guy all year, theres no doubt, manager Scott Servais said.Wade LeBlanc pitched the final three innings for his first save.Former Mariners players Michael Saunders and Justin Smoak combined for three home runs against their old team, but it was nowhere near enough for the Blue Jays, who gave up a season-worst 14 runs.Saunders hit two solo homers, one off Iwakuma in the sixth and another off LeBlanc in the eighth. It was hiss eighth career multihomer game and third this season. Chelsea Jersey. Saunders, who also connected in Fridays 2-1 loss, matched his career high with 19.Smoak hit a two-run drive off LeBlanc in the eighth, his 11th.Cruzs first homer came after Dickey (7-11) hit consecutive batters to load the bases in the third.Dickey left after the first four batters reached safely in the fourth, his shortest start of the season. He gave up six earned runs, matching a season worst, and seven hits.Dickey has yielded 24 homers this season. Only Kansas Citys Ian Kennedy and Chris Young (26) have allowed more.I felt like I executed a pretty good pitch to Cruz and he did a good job of staying with it, Dickey said.Seattle widened its lead with a five-run sixth, when the first five batters all got hits off reliever Jesse Chavez.Cruz batted with the bases loaded for a second time but grounded into a double play. Seager chased Chavez with a homer to center, his 19th.THE DECIDERIwakuma has received a decision in 17 of his 20 starts.WALK THIS WAYBlue Jays slugger Josh Donaldson walked twice. He leads the AL with 67 walks.COLABELLOS SUSPENSION OVERBlue Jays 1B Chris Colabello has been reinstated from the restricted list after serving an 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. Colabello was suspended April 22 after the commissioners office said he tested positive for a drug sold under the name Turinabol. Colabello was designated off the 25-man Toronto roster Saturday, but was kept on the 40-man roster. Hes expected to be assigned to Triple-A Buffalo.TRAINERS ROOMMariners: Seattle placed SS Ketel Marte (mononucleosis) on the 15-day DL, retroactive to July 20, and recalled LHP David Rollins from Triple-A Tacoma.UP NEXTMariners: LHP Wade Miley (6-7, 5.36) is 0-5 with a 5.60 ERA in his past five starts.Blue Jays: LHP J.A. Happ (12-4, 3.43) is 6-0 in seven starts since his most recent loss, June 6 at Detroit.
