Butler Bulldogs shooting guard Kellen Dunham is one of 20 players to be recognized on this year's Jerry West Award watchlist.

Given to the top shooting guard in the country, the Jerry West Award is in its second year, having been awarded to Ohio State Buckeyes and current Los Angeles Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell a season ago.  St. John's' D'Angelo Harrison was amongst those who were vying for the award last season.

Dunham joins the likes of Duke's Grayson Allen, Florida State's Dwayne Bacon, Indiana's James Blackmon, LSU's Antonio Blakeney, Michigan's Caris Levert, Oklahoma's Buddy Hield, and Virginia's Malcom Brogdon amongst other viable contenders for the honor.
