2021 Wooden Award Odds Contenders
The favorite to win this year's Wooden Award opens with big man Luka Garza. The Iowa Hawkeye enters his final year with the school, seeing nearly 24 points per game in 2019 to go along with 9.8 boards per game.
Ayo Dosunmu enters his third year with the Illinois Fighting Illini, averaging a double-digit point total in both of his first two seasons. His field goal percentage, free throw percentage and point total all improved during his second year but still lacks range.
Jared Butler looks to lead Baylor to a National Championship, averaging 16 points per game last year with a lethal 3-point shot. Baylor's success will be on Butler's shoulder for the most part, a viable candidate if the Bears mirror last year's run.
