Aug. 5, 2004

Los Angeles, Ca - Chris Hernandez, who helped lead Stanford University to a 30-2 record and a Pac-10 title in 2003-04, is one of 50 candidates named a pre-season candidate for the 2004-05 John R. Wooden All-American team. The top 50 candidates were selected based on last year's individual performance and team records. Hernandez, an All Pac-10 selection, was one of the top point-guards in the nation last year. Hernandez, a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, averaged ten points per game. Hernandez led the Pac-10 Conference in free throw percentage (.914) and three-point field goal percentage (.460). Hernandez is one of six Pac-10 players nominated as pre-season Wooden All-American candidates. The list includes Ike Diogu of Arizona State, Channing Frye of Arizona, Leon Powe of California, Nate Robinson of Washington and Salim Stoudamire of Arizona. In mid-January, the Wooden Award committee will release the Midseason Top 30. In late March, the ten player Wooden Award All-American team will be announced. Josh Childress, who now plays for the NBA's Atlanta Hawks, was named to the Wooden All-American team last year. For more information, go to�
