Novak Named to Wooden List; James Injury Update

Congratulations to Steve Novak. Novak is included on the Wooden Award's 'Midseason Top 30 Candidates' list announced earlier today. The Big East has a total of 9 players on this midseason list, the most of any conference.

Tonight on his radio program, Coach Tom Crean addressed Dominic James' injury. In a nutshell, he's day to day with a shoulder sprain (but we're all day to day, as Olbermann loved to point out on the Big Show). James did not practice on Sunday or Monday, and its unclear if he will on Tuesday. Coach praised James' toughness and hoped he'd be ready to play on Wednesday.

On the bright side, Novak apparently had a good practice today -- showing more improvement in his recovery from an injured ankle.
