Oscar Robertson Trophy

Both the Louisville Cardinals and Kentucky Wildcats are represented on the Oscar Robertson Trophy Midseason Watch List that was released Thursday afternoon. Senior guard Russ Smith and freshman forward Julius Randle are up for the most prestigious award in college basketball.

Excerpt of GoCards.com Press Release of Smith:

Through 20 games, the senior has paced the Cardinals in scoring with 18.1 points per game, along with leading the team in assists (96), steals (38), and 3-pointers made (43). The Brooklyn, N.Y., native, who surpassed 300 career assists on Wednesday, is 21 shy of breaking last year’s single-season best of 116.

In conference play, Smith is averaging 30.3 minutes in seven contests and ranks first in the conference in steals per game (2.4) and 3-point field goal percentage (61.3), second in scoring with 20.1 points per game, and is third in 3-pointers made per game with 2.7.

Excerpt from UKAthletics.com Press Release of Randle:

The Dallas, Texas, native is currently leading the Wildcats with 16.7 points per game and 10.6 rebounds per outing. He’s tallied 11 double-doubles through 18 contests a mark that ranks as the most of any John Calipari-coached player at UK through the same number of games. UK’s single season freshman record for double-doubles is 20 held by both DeMarcus Cousins and former Oscar Robertson Trophy award winner Anthony Davis.
