Ayton, Trier part of Wooden Award mid-season finalist list

Junior guard Allonzo Trier and freshman forward Deandre Ayton have made the cut for the 25 mid-season finalists for the John R. Wooden Award® presented by Wendy’s®.

The two are part of four players from the Pac-12 Conference. The other two are Arizona State’s Tra Holder and UCLA’s Aaron Holiday.
