2013-14 Bob Cousy Award Watch List & AnnouncementGet Acrobat Reader

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Massachusetts point guard Chaz Williams has been named to the initial group for the Bob Cousy Award Watch List that was announced by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Tuesday.

Williams is one of 46 Division I players named to the list, which recognizes the top point guard in men's college basketball.

The senior from Brooklyn, N.Y. has averaged 16.2 points and 6.8 assists in two seasons at UMass. His 473 assists rank fifth in school history and are 203 shy of the school record. Additionally, his assist total since arriving on campus from Hofstra is the second-highest nationally among D-I returnees.

This watch list of candidates is fluid with the potential for a student-athlete to be added or removed during the season, but will be narrowed down to a final 20 in early February, then the final five by early March. 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.
