Benson, Benson, Benson

Oakland center Keith Benson, who said he recently received his diploma, was put on's preseason top 50 list at No. 36. The site read:

No. 36: Oakland C Keith Benson
THE PARTICULARS: 6-11/230, Sr.; Detroit Country Day
THE BUZZ: Don't be fooled because he plays for a small-school program near Detroit - this guy is one of the best big men in the nation. Benson averaged 17.3 points and led the Summit League in blocks (117), rebounds (368) and double-doubles (18) last season. He even produced against the big-name foes on the Grizzlies' schedule.

The same day, he was also omitted from list the Wooden Award finalists. Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Eisenberg called Benson one of the biggest Wooden snubs.
