Georgetown junior men's DaJuan Summers was one of 50 player selected as preseason candidates for the John R. Wooden Award All-American Team and Player of the Year trophy. The list is comprised of players who, based on last year's individual performance and team records, are the early frontrunners for college basketball's most prestigious honor.

In all, 42 schools and 13 conferences are represented on the Wooden Award Preseason list. The Big East led the way, with 12 individuals from conference schools selected.

Summers is coming off a sophomore season in which he finished second on the team in scoring, with 11.1 points per game, and second in rebounding, grabbing 5.4 boards per game. As a freshman, he was named to the All-Big East rookie team and was selected to the Big East's all-tournament team when the Hoyas beat Pittsburgh to claim the championship. He finished his freshman season in 2006-07 averaging 9.2 points and 3.7 rebounds while hitting 42 three-pointers.

He enters his junior year having started in 67 of 70 games, averaging 10.1 points and 4.5 points. Summers has scored 701 career points.
