    Preseason accolades don’t mean all that much. Hoping Jalen earns his was as a finalist for this award!

    +1

    (Didn't he and Ford have the game of their lives in the WCC semi's last year?)

    Yes i believe he put up 40+

    Averaged 20 points, 8 assists for two straight years.. Yes hes very good.

    But back to Jalen... cant wait to see him in action. If he really is 1 and done, lottery pick, then I like our chances barring injuries.

    From the jump, you'd prefer Ross over Suggs this season? Stunning, if true. Ross is a very nice, undersized college player who, as compared to Suggs, will need to buy a ticket for the next NBA game he goes to.

    Just to be clear, I’m not taking Ross over Jalen for the Zags but rather Ross for the Cousy Award...I think it’s a senior class award and Jalen would have to have a fantastic 20-21 season to be considered

    Gotcha but I never thought advanced class was a factor in determining any of these awards. Seems there are as many non seniors as seniors on these lists every year. Why are Suggs, Cade, etc on the list then?

    .......”the annual honor now in its 18th year recognizes the top point guards in Division I men's college basketball. A national committee of top college basketball....”

    I think it has to do with their pre-D1 success as well as all the hype surrounding their recruitment...they are both exceptional talents but still unproven at the D1 level

    No freshman has won the Cousy yet. 8 seniors, 4 juniors, 5 sophomores.

    Thanks for making my point. Class status a non factor.

    I was actually a little surprised a freshman hasn't won, but probably the toughest position for a freshman to master.

    Suggs will be the first if not Cade. Pretty lackluster group beyond Gillespie who’s well know and plays in best program in the country

    We win the title with Jalen running the show, I'd bet he'll win this thing. Circuitive logic or not, he'll have to be superior to get us there. If he's THAT good, Jalen will win the Cousy award....

    think the awards are decided beforehand, so performance in march madness doesn't count...

    I meant the season’s performance not just the NCAA tournament.
