Indiana’s the only team with two players among the top 10.


Tyler Hansbrough, a junior forward for North Carolina, the nation’s *No. 1-ranked team, tops CSTV.com’s 2008 Wooden Watch for the seventh consecutive week.  Hansbrough leads all players with seven first place votes.  Kansas State freshman forward Michael Beasley ranks No. 2 this week, followed by Indiana freshman guard Eric Gordon.  UCLA freshman forward Kevin Love ranks No. 4, up from No. 7 last week, while Texas sophomore guard D.J. Augustin rounds out the top five.

The Wooden Watch panel includes CSTV college basketball talent Steve Lappas, Pete Gillen, Brian Curtis and Sean Farnham; CSTV.com basketball columnists Jerry Palm, David Scott, Phil Kasiecki and Josh Herwitt; and CBS Sports.com columnists Gary Parrish and Gregg Doyel.

Not related to the wooden watch, but I thought others might be interested in hearing what Coach Sampson had to say on Minneapolis local radio this evening.
