LOS ANGELES - Washington senior guard Cameo Hicks was named one of 30 preseason candidates for the 2006-07 Women's John R. Wooden Award, it was announced today.

The list is comprised of 30 student-athletes who, based on last year's individual performance and team records, are the early frontrunners for college basketball's most coveted trophy. Last season, Hicks guided the Huskies to a 19-11 record and a trip to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. A first-team All-Pac-10 selection, she led the Huskies in scoring (15.0 ppg) and rebounding (5.6 rpg).
