The Wooden Award List of 50 candidates for college basketball's Player of the Year was announced today, and not a single player from your Georgetown Hoyas has been nominated for the award. However, ESPN's Andy Katz has listed a number of potential snubs from the list, and included among them is Hollis Thompson:
Hollis Thompson, Georgetown: If the Hoyas are to make the NCAA tournament again and be a pest in the upper half of the Big East, then Thompson needs a breakout season.

Here's hoping that Hollis can pull off the same trick.
