As preseason award lists continue to make their way out this week, another Big East player found himself on one.

On Thursday afternoon, Villanova forward Kris Jenkins was named to the 2017 Karl Malone Award watch list.

Jenkins averaged 13.6 points per game for the Wildcats last season, and also hit a pretty significant shot that you may remember.

Some other notable candidates include: Nigel Hayes (Wisconsin), TJ Leaf (UCLA), Caleb Swanigan (Purdue), Carlton Bragg (Kansas), and others.
