Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson made yet another midseason Player of the Year midseason watch list, for the Naismith Award.

UCLA's Kyle Anderson is the only other Pac-12 player to make the list.

Gordon and Johnson are also on the midseason watch lists for the Wooden and Oscar Robertson awards.

One of the biggest questions I hear these days is how can Aaron Gordon possibly be an NBA prospect if he can't shoot? I tried to explore why today (and we had a slide show on him), while very detailed video analysis of him is available on Draft Express and CBS Sports.

Gordon is rising on SI's mock board, while a Lakers blog also took a look at him as a prospect today.

Herb Sendek says Arizona "has a way of swallowing you."

Colorado may have heard some encouraging words about its NCAA chances.

Stephen Zimmerman says Sean Miller, John Calipari and Rick Pitino have made big impressions in his recruitment so far.
