LOS ANGELES - With the start Keldon Johnson is off to, it should come as no surprise the Kentucky men’s basketball freshman guard was among the 25 players on Wednesday’s John R. Wooden Award Midseason Top 25.

Chosen by a poll of national college basketball experts based on their performances during the first half of the 2018-19 season, the Wooden list is comprised of 25 student-athletes who are frontrunners for national player of the year.

Johnson is one of five freshmen on the midseason list and one of three players from the Southeastern Conference.
