De’Aaron Fox named to the Bob Cousy Award Preseason Watch List


Congratulations to De’Aaron Fox, who is one of 20 players named to the preseason watch list for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the nation’s top point guard. Fox is one of only four freshmen on the watch list, along with Duke’s Frank Jackson, NC State’s Dennis Smith, UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, and Washington’s Markelle Fultz.

Here’s the complete list of candidates:

  • Jalen Adams, Connecticut
  • Maurice Watson Jr., Creighton
  • Jack Gibbs, Davidson
  • Frank Jackson, Duke
  • Nigel Williams-Goss, Gonzaga
  • Monte Morris, Iowa State
  • Frank Mason, Kansas
  • De’Aaron Fox, Kentucky
  • Melo Trimble, Maryland
  • Joel Berry II, North Carolina
  • Dennis Smith, NC State
  • Jawun Evans, Oklahoma State
  • Lonzo Ball, UCLA
  • Jordan McLaughlin, Southern California
  • Jalen Brunson, Villanova
  • London Perrantes, Virginia
  • Seth Allen, Virginia Tech
  • Markelle Fultz, Washington
  • Bronson Koenig, Wisconsin
  • Edmund Sumner, Xavier

If you’ll remember, last year, Tyler Ulis became the first Kentucky player to ever win the Bob Cousy award. Ulis, now with the Phoenix Suns, put together one of the best individual seasons for a point guard in school history, setting the UK single-season record for assists in a season with 246 dimes.

Will Fox make it two in a row?
