Bookmark and Share  

A pair of Kansas players – Devon Dotson and Udoka Azubuike – were among 12 selected for the USBWA's midseason Oscar Robertson Trophy watch list.

The Oscar Robertson Trophy will be presented to the nation's player of the year at the Final Four in April and the winner will be honored at the USBWA Awards Dinner on April 13 at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.

The list also includes a pair of high-scoring guards from the Big East Conference – Marquette's Markus Howard and Seton Hall's Myles Powell. Howard leads the nation in scoring, at 27.3 points per game, and set the Big East career scoring record. Powell is the pro­gram's all-time leader in 3-point field goals.

Azubuike leads the nation in field-goal percent­age. If he maintains his current pace of .734, he will break the NCAA career record for field-goal percent­age.

San Diego State guard Malachi Flynn averages 16.5 points and five assists with a 3:1 assist-to­turnover ratio for the only undefeated team in the nation.

Iowa center Luka Garza is one of only two play­ers to average better than 23 points and 9.9 rebounds.

Michigan State senior guard Cassius Winston is the Big Ten's career leader in assists (849).

Jordan Nwora leads the ACC in scoring (18.8) and his 469 points this year is the second-most by a Louisville player through 25 games over the last 20 seasons.

Oregon guard Payton Pritchard is only player in the nation leading his conference in both scoring (19.5) and assists (6.0).

Vernon Carey Jr. of Duke was the only freshman named to the list. Dotson, Obi Toppin of Dayton and Filip Petrusev of Gonzaga are the list's only sophomores.
