The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced the watch list of candidates for the 2015 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award, naming Arizona point guard TJ McConnell as a nominee.

The annual honor, named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, recognizes the top point guards in men’s college basketball. Over 35 candidates have been nominated for the 2015 Bob Cousy Award.

This watch list of candidates will be narrowed down to a final 20 in early February, then final five by early March. A premier Selection Committee has been appointed by the Hall of Fame to review the candidates in contention for the nation’s top collegiate point guard award. This committee is made up of top college basketball personnel including members of the media, head coaches, media relations contacts and Hall of Famers. The Cousy Award winner will be presented the award on Championship Monday in Indianapolis at the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2015 Announcement and Press Conference.

Previous winners of the Bob Cousy Award have included Jameer Nelson (St. Joseph’s), Raymond Felton (North Carolina), Dee Brown (Illinois), Acie Law (Texas A & M), DJ Augustin (Texas), Ty Lawson (North Carolina), Greivis Vasquez (Maryland), Kemba Walker (Connecticut) Kendall Marshall (North Carolina), Trey Burke (Michigan) and last year’s winner Shabazz Napier (Connecticut).

    Good to see TJ get national recognition. He isn’t a dynamic scoring option, but his defense, passing, and intangibles make him a great PG.

    It’s worth noting that last season, McConnell was included among the round of 20 semifinalists for the 2014 Cousy Award.
