    Springfield, Mass. - The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced today the watch list of candidates for the 2014 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award. The annual honor, named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, recognizes the top point guards in men's college basketball. This list was created by a committee of well-respected media members and influential people within college basketball from around the country.

    Indiana University sophomore Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell is one of 45 players named to the Bob Cousy Award Watch List which was announced by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Ferrell, who earned All-Big Ten honors as a freshman, averaged 7.6 points and 4.1 assists in his first season with the Hoosiers.

    "The Hall of Fame is proud to work with Mr. Cousy and honor the best point guards playing in college basketball right now," said John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame. "This list represents some of the top student athletes from across the country. We are truly honored to be apart of this award."

    "The Bob Cousy Award promotes the values of leadership, determination, and teamwork, all skills needed not only on the hardwood but also in life," said Ken Kaufman, Chair of the Bob Cousy Award and former president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). "Mr. Cousy exemplified all of these traits, and continues to be an inspiration to basketball players on and off the court."

    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 Dallas at the Hall of Fame's Class of 2014 Announcement and Press Conference.
