Not only is Brock Motum one of the best players in the Pac-12, he is apparently one of the best college basketball players in the nation. And so is Gonzaga's Elias Harris.

Harris, from Germany, and Motum, from Australia were named to Wooden Award preseason top 50 list.

Motum led the conference in scoring last season and finished with a 109.0 offensive rating. Harris averaged 13.1 points per game while making 41 percent of his three-point shots.
