🏀 KU’s Remy Martin Named to Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award Watch List
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Kansas super-senior Remy Martin has been named one of 20 watch list candidates for the 2022 Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced today.
Martin is looking to become the second Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award winner from Kansas as Frank Mason III won the honor in 2017. This is the 19th season for the award and a national committee of top college basketball personnel determined the watch list of 20 candidates.
Last week, Martin was named the 2021-22 Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year and preseason all-conference by the league coaches. The Burbank, California, native is playing his final season at KU after transferring from Arizona State. While at ASU, Martin was a three-time All-Pac-12 selection, earning second-team honors as a sophomore and first team his junior and senior seasons. In 2020-21, Martin led the Pac-12 with 19.1 points per game, including 21.5 ppg. in conference play. Martin brings career totals of 1,754 points, 466 assists, 151 steals and 176 three-point field goals made to Kansas.
