Josh Perkins Named Bob Cousy Award Top 10 Finalist

Perkins is Considered to be One of the Top Point Guards in the Nation

The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame announced earlier today the top 10 point guards in the nation through the Bob Cousy Award. This award has been around for 16 years. Past winners include Jalen Brunson (2017-2018), Trey Burke (2012-2013), Kemba Walker (2010-2011), and more.

2018-2019 Top 10 Candidates:

Ky Bowman, Boston College

Josh Perkins, Gonzaga

Tremont Waters, LSU

Markus Howard, Marquette

Cassius Winston, Michigan State

Ja Morant, Murray State

Cody Martin, Nevada

Carsen Edwards, Purdue

Jordan Bone, Tennessee

Ty Jerome, Virginia

This list has a lot of talented players. If I had to choose my top 3 candidates to win this award at the end of the college basketball season, I would pick (in no particular order) Ja Morant (24.1 PPG, 10.3 APG, 5.6 RPG), Carsen Edwards (24.5 PPG, 3.5 APG, 3.3 RPG), and Markus Howard (25.0 PPG, 4.2 APG, 4.0 SPG). The final 5 finalists will be announced early March and the winner of the award will be announced early April.
