Suggs a Cousy finalist
Gonzaga’s Jalen Suggs is one of five finalists for the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award.
Suggs joins Baylor’s Jared Butler, Illinois’ Ayo Dosunmu, Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham and Villanova’s Collin Gillespie on the list of finalists. Suggs and Cunningham are freshmen.
Suggs leads the WCC in steals (2.0), ranks fourth in field goal percentage (51.2), fifth in assists (4.3) and 11th in scoring (14.1).
He’s been named WCC freshman of the week nine times. He was named WCC player of the week after scoring 27 points in a 99-88 victory over then-No. 3 Iowa.
Oregon’s Payton Pritchard won the award last year, and Murray State’s Ja Morant did in 2019.
