Cousy Award 2014 watch list includes three Pac-12 point guards
Three of the Pac-12's top point guards have been named to a prestigious preseason award watch list.
Arizona's T.J. McConnell, Stanford's Chasson Randle and Utah's Delon Wright have all been named to the 2015 Bob Cousy Award watch list, which is awarded annually by the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame to the nation's top college point guard.
McConnell, a senior who was a candidate for the award last season, returns to Tucson after being named to the All-Pac-12 second team and the Pac-12's All-Defensive team. He led the Wildcats with more than five assists per game in addition to his 8.4 PPG average.
Randle helped lead the Cardinal to the Sweet 16 in 2013-14 and earned All-Pac-12 first team honors. He comes into this season as a veteran leader for the Cardinal who started all 36 Stanford games last season, putting up 18.8 points and 3.6 boards per night.
Wright, a cornerstone of Utah's progam this season, is a floor general who averaged more minutes per game (36.4) than anyone else in the Pac-12 last season. He also challenged single-season records for the Utes in 2013-14 for steals and assists.
