BYU senior guard Kyle Collinsworth is one of 20 collegiate point guards to be named to the 2016 Bob Cousy Award watch list.
Collinsworth was also named to the Cousy Award watch list last season. He led the Cougars to a 25-10 record and averaged 13.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and six assists per game. He also set the NCAA single-season record for triple-doubles with six.
“The athletes on this list represent the most dedicated and skillful point guards in college basketball,” said the President and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame, John Doleva. “They exhibit many of the characteristics that made Mr. Cousy such a successful player and we are pleased to be recognizing them for their accomplishments.”
Despite the recognition, it’s all about consistency for Collinsworth,
“I have some pretty good goals for myself and my time,” Collinsworth said at BYU’s media day. “The main thing though with all of the records is to be consistent. I’m trying to be consistently good every day like I was last season, and great things happen.”
The watch list will be cut from 20 players to 10 by mid-February and five finalists will be presented to Cousy and the Basketball Hall of Fame selection committee in March.
The winner of the Cousy Award will be announced on April 8, 2016.
