Cousy Award finalists announced; no Knight

Hunter Campbellover 10 years



The finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the nation’s top point guard, were announced this afternoon and, unfortunately for those of you who had Brandon Knight in the office pool, he was not one of the five. Knight made the list of ten almost finalists, but couldn’t push through to make the final group. The five finalists are:

Jimmer Fredette, BYU

Nolan Smith, Duke

Jordan Taylor, Wisconsin

Kemba Walker, Connecticut, and

Norris Cole (whoever that is) , Cleveland State

Can’t argue too much with the selections, as I found out between the last line and this one that Cole averages 22 points and over five assists and scored in double figures in every game this year. The other four have had great seasons, and it is still an honor for Knight to get so close to making the final list of the country’s best point men.

Go Cats.
