BYU and Utah are represented in the 2014-15 John R. Wooden Award Late Season Top 20 list, as the Cougars’ Tyler Haws and the Utes’ Delon Wright were named on the list Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Athletic Club gives the John R. Wooden Award annually to the most outstanding men’s and women’s college basketball player.

Haws continues to lead the Cougars, as the senior is averaging 22.5 points per game to go along with 4.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.

Wright is one of the main reasons the Utes are a near-Top 10 team in the country. The Utah senior is averaging 14.2 points per game with 4.5 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game.

Both BYU and Utah have had Wooden Award winners in the past decade. In 2005, Utah center Andrew Bogut received the honor and BYU’s Jimmer Fredette was the recipient of the award in 2011.

The 39th annual Wooden Award ceremony will honor and announce the men's and women's John R. Wooden Award winners the weekend of April 10-12.
