LOS ANGELES (AP) – Brittney Griner of Baylor, Nnemkadi Ogwumike of Stanford and Skylar Diggins of Notre Dame are among the finalists for the John R. Wooden Award given to the top women’s college basketball player.

Griner and Ogwumike were finalists last year, when Maya Moore of Connecticut won for the second time. The other finalists are Elena Delle Donne of Delaware and Julie Wojta of Wisconsin Green Bay. All five women were named to the women’s Wooden All-American team on Wednesday.

Griner, Ogwumike and Diggins have led their teams to the women’s Final Four in Denver. Griner’s team is ranked No. 1 and at 38-0 is two wins away from completing a perfect season.

The women’s Wooden Award winner will be announced on April 6 in a ceremony at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.
