AMES, Iowa – Iowa State point guard DeAndre Kane has been named to the Bob Cousy Award Final 20, as released Monday by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Named after Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, the annual honor recognizes the top point guards in men’s college basketball.

Kane is averaging 15.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists. He is one of just two players nationally averaging at least 15 points, six rebounds and six assists. Kane has scored in double figures in 20 games, including eight with 20 or more points. The senior is 10th in the Big 12 in scoring, first in assists, second in steals and 13th in rebounds.

Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 18 through Monday, March 10, fans from around the country will have the chance to vote for the top point guard in college basketball – fan voting begins on at 9 a.m. (CT). The current listing of 20 finalists will be narrowed down to five players in early March. The final five players in contention for the award will be presented to Mr. Cousy and the Hall of Fame’s selection committee. The Hall of Fame committee is made up of top college basketball personnel including media members, head coaches, Hall of Famers and Sports Information Directors.
