Jalen Brunson, Kyron Cartwright named to Bob Cousy Award watch list

You can tell we’re close to the season when these are coming out!

NCAA Basketball: Villanova at Providence Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Watch list season has arrived!

The Naismith Hall of Fame released its Bob Cousy Award watch list Monday afternoon, and two Big East players made the cut!

Villanova’s Jalen Brunson and Providence’s Kyron Cartwright both found themselves on the list of 20 players.

Brunson was second on the Wildcats in scoring last season and led the squad with 4.1 assists per game.

Cartwright showed the nation that Ed Cooley and the Providence Friars have yet another high-caliber point guard, leading the Big East with 6.7 assists per game (fourth nationally) and adding 11.4 points per game.

The Cousy Award, given annually to the nation’s best point guard, has been awarded since 2003. Kemba Walker is the Big East’s lone winner in that time, receiving the honor in 2010-11
