Throwback Thursday: Curry Carries Davidson

The season of college basketball award watch lists is upon us.

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame released its annual preseason Hoophall Awards watch lists from Oct. 16-20. Each watch list (five total) recognizes 20-21 of Division I men's basketball's premier student-athletes from each respective position.

The five Hoophall Awards are as follows: Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award, Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year Award, Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year Award, Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Center of the Year Award. Each 20-player preseason watch list will be cut down to 10 in February. The winner of each award will then be announced at the ESPN College Basketball Awards Show on April 6, 2018.

Here are the 2018 Hoophall watch lists: Bob Cousy Award | Jerry West Award | Julius Erving Award | Karl Malone Award | Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award

Last year's winners were Frank Mason III, Kansas (Cousy); Malik Monk, Kentucky (West); Josh Hart, Villanova (Erving); Johnathan Motley, Baylor (Malone); and Przemek Karnowski, Gonzaga (Abdul-Jabbar). Here was the full list of finalists from 2016-17.
