 LOS ANGELES – Arizona freshman Stanley Johnson has been named to the John R. Wooden Award Late Season Top 20, a first-time list by the Los Angeles Athletic Club intended to further narrow the list of frontrunners for one of college basketball's most prestigious awards.

Johnson is one of three Pac-12 players named to the list, and one of four freshmen from across the nation alongside Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor of Duke and D'Angelo Russell of Ohio State.

Arizona's leader in scoring and rebounding, Johnson is one of just two freshmen in the major college basketball conferences averaging at least 14.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per game (also Okafor) with marks of 14.6 points and 6.8 boards per night.

The Fullerton, Calif., native leads Pac-12 freshmen and ranks 12th overall in the league in scoring, while ranking second among freshmen and seventh among all Pac-12 players with an average of 1.5 steals per contest. He leads Arizona and ranks third nationally among freshmen with 134 free throw attempts, the 10th-most ever by a UA freshman.

Johnson has scored in double figures 20 times in 23-career games, leading the Wildcats in scoring 12 times and rebounds on nine occasions, and has posted a pair of double-doubles.

In November, he was named MVP of the EA Sports Maui Invitational after averaging 15.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game as Arizona claimed the tournament crown.

Johnson is familiar with the John R. Wooden Award tradition, having earned the John R. Wooden Award for California Division I High School Player of the Year in both 2013 and 2014.
