The Bob Cousy Award Candidates for 2012 were announced today. The award recognizes the top point guard in all of college basketball. Being that there are 60 candidates that make the initial list, you would think that Vincent Council would be an absolute shoe in. Well, apparently he is nowhere to be found on the list.
This has to be some sort of mistake, right? While there are some great point guards on that list, there are some players that Council would run circles around out on the court.
Take for example sophomore Mackey McKnight of Lehigh. Sounds like a made up name, right? Well he made the list despite averaging 7.9 points and 2.9 assists in 24 minutes of play per game. Or how about Bryan Dougher of the powerhouse Stony Brook Seawolves? He is averaging 2.222 assists per game. Not that it’s the job of the point guard position or anything.
