Tray Woodall named to Bob Cousy Award Watch List

Tray Woodall named to Bob Cousy Award Watch List

Senior Pitt point guard Tray Woodall has received some early recognition for his play throughout the Panthers preseason.

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced on Thursday that Woodall has been named to the 2013 Bob Cousy Award Watch List. The Bob Cousy Award goes to the top point guard in men’s college basketball.

Woodall is averaging 12.3 points, 6.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds through Pitt’s first 12 games (11-1), while shooting 52 percent (56-108) from the floor and 41 percent (22-54) from 3-point range. The senior floor general has eight double figure scoring games and two 20-point contests and has a streak of 32 consecutive games with an assist.

In addition, Woodall ranks among Pitt’s career leaders in double figure assist games (fourth, eight), point-assist double-doubles (second, six), assists (seventh, 487) and assist-to-turnover ratio (third, 2.16).

He also needs only 122 points to become the 41st player in school history to reach the 1,000 career point mark.

It’s doubtful Woodall wins the Cousy Award, as there are some quality point guards around the nation, but being recognized for it is also a statement to not only the season he is having, but his career as well.

Pitt hosts Kennesaw State on Sunday, Dec. 23 at the Petersen Events Center before beginning Big East Conference play against No. 11 Cincinnati on Monday, Dec. 31 (noon).
