Cal junior guard Allen Crabbe has been named to the preseason 50-man watch list for the John Wooden Award for the second straight year.
Crabbe led the Bears last season with a 15.2 points-per-game scoring average.
Crabbe is joined on the list by three other Pac-12 players — Arizona’s Solomon Hill, Colorado’s Andre Roberson and Washington State’s Brock Motum.
Also on the preseason list is Saint Mary’s College senior point guard Matthew Dellavedova, the reigning West Coast Conference Player of the Year.
The Bears open their season Sunday against Cal State Bakersfield. Tipoff is 7 p.m. at Haas Pavilion.
