The Bob Cousy Award watch list was released on Tuesday morning and it runs 45 players deep.

The Cousy Award is given every year to the nation’s best point guard. The part three winners have been Kemba Walker, Kendall Marshall and Trey Burke. 

Three players on our list of top 20 lead guards — Jerian Grant, Deonte Burton and Olivier Hanlon — didn’t make the cut, which is silly. Because all three are certainly among the 45 best point guards in the country.
