Gators Kenny Boynton, Scottie Wilbekin named to Bob Cousy Watch List



Florida senior guard Kenny Boynton and junior guard Scottie Wilbekin are among 85 candidates that have been named to the 2013 Bob Cousy Watch List, the award presented to the college point guard of the year.

Boynton is second on the team in scoring and assists, averaging 12.6 points per game and 2.8 assists per contest. Boynton is fifth on UF’s all-time scoring list and fourth in 3-pointers made. In Florida's win over Southeastern Louisiana Wednesday night, he became the fifth Gator to eclipse the 1,700-point mark.

Wilbekin is the team’s leader in assists, averaging 4.1 assists per game. The junior guard is currently fifth in the SEC in assists per game. He is also scoring 8.3 points per game, which is up nearly six points from his first two years’ average. 

The watch list will be narrowed down to 20 candidates, with five finalists selected in March. The winner will be presented at the NCAA Final Four in Atlanta.
