LOS ANGELES (AP) - Brittney Griner of Baylor has won the women's John R. Wooden Award as college basketball's national player of the year for the second consecutive year.
Griner is the fourth woman to win back-to-back awards. She averaged 23.8 points - third-best in the country - and 4.14 blocked shots as a senior, and finished her career as the No. 2 scorer in NCAA history.
Griner didn't attend Friday night's ceremony at the Los Angeles Athletic Club because she is in Hartford, Conn., ahead of next week's WNBA draft. She also missed last year's ceremony.
Trey Burke of national runner-up Michigan won the men's Wooden Award, completing the sophomore guard's sweep of the major player of the year awards. He was announced as the winner at last weekend's Final Four in Atlanta.
