Frazier on Cousy Award Watch List

Nittany Lion Guard among 46 preseason candidates for award given to Nation's Top Point Guard.
STATE COLLEGE, CENTRE COUNTY - Tim Frazier (Houston, Texas) is one of 46 preseason candidates named to the watch list for the Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award, announced Tuesday by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. A graduate guard returning for his fifth year after a season-ending injury a year ago, Frazier is one of four players from the Big Ten on the list, which will be narrowed to a final 20 in early February and then final five by early March.

        Frazier previously was a Top 20 candidate for the award in 2011-12 – his last full campaign in the blue and white – while leading the Big Ten in assists (6.2 apg) and finishing second in scoring (18.8 ppg) en route to First Team All-Big Ten honors. Before rupturing his left Achilles tendon four games into last season, he was producing at a 21.7 points-per-game clip and averaging 5.7 assists.

        The PSU single-season record holder in assists with 198 assists in 2011-12, Frazier now stands 142 assists shy of eclipsing the program's career assist record of 600. Also among the Top 25 in scoring (24th, 1035 points), the Houston, Texas, native could end his career among Penn State's top five in career scoring, assists and steals and as just the second Lion to post 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists.

The full list of players on the watch list is available in the attached release from the Naismith Hall of Fame.
        Named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, The Cousy Award recognizes the top point guard in college basketball. The winner of the 2014 Bob Cousy Award will be presented at the Hall of Fame's Class Announcement on Championship Monday in Dallas as part of NCAA Final Four weekend.
