The final 15 college basketball players up for the coveted Oscar Robertson Trophy were named Thursday afternoon. Louisville senior Russ Smith and freshman sensation Julius Randle are both on the list.
Smith is averaging 17.5 points and 4.5 assists per game. He has grown so much as an all-around basketball player over the past couple years and has stepped up this year into a leader for the Cardinals.
Randle is averaging 15.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. Although only a freshman he is without a doubt one of the most exciting players to watch in college basketball.
