Kentucky Wildcats freshman point guard De’Aaron Fox has been named to the Bob Cousy Award watch list.
The Cousy Award, given annually to the nation’s best point guard by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, revealed its ten player watch list on Monday afternoon.
Fox is averaging 15.9 points and 5.7 assists per game this season. His 5.7 assists per game leads all SEC players, while his 15.9 points per game is good enough for seventh in the conference.
Fox is looking to become the second straight Kentucky player to win the Cousy Award, as Tyler Ulis won it last season. He would also be the first freshman to bring home the hardware.
The full watch list can be found right here.
The winner will be announced April 7 at ESPN’s College Basketball Awards show.
