UVa.’s Landesberg on Naismith watch list

The Atlantic Coast Conference placed nine players on the Naismith 2009-10 preseason watch list. The ACC was represented by Florida State’s Solomon Alabi, Wake Forest’s Al-Farouq Aminu, Clemson’s Trevor Booker, North Carolina’s Ed Davis, Georgia Tech’s Derrick Favors and Gani Lawal, Virginia’s Sylven Landesberg, Duke’s Kyle Singler and Maryland’s Greivis Vasquez. 

The ACC and the Big East each placed nine representatives on the preseason team, while the Big XII and SEC each had eight.

The watch list was compiled by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, which based its criteria on player performances from the previous year and expectations for the 2009-10 college basketball season. The Naismith Trophy presented by AT&T will be awarded at the 2010 NCAA Men’s Final Four in Indianapolis, Ind.
