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.

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.
