A few days after being named the Big 12 Conference’s Preseason Player of the Year, Kansas senior Remy Martin was added to the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award watch list.
Martin, who transferred to Kansas from Arizona State in the offseason, is vying to become the first Jayhawk to win the honor since Frank Mason III did it in 2017.
This is the 19th season of the Cousy Award, which tasked a national committee to determine the 20-man list.
Asked last week about the recent Big 12 honor, Martin made it clear that his focus was way more on team accomplishments than any individual accolades.
“I really just didn't care too much about it,” Martin told a small group of reporters about the Big 12 award. “But I am happy that people are honoring my play and my existence playing basketball, so that’s pretty cool. …It’s nice to be honored and it’s a blessing.”
While at ASU, Martin was a three-time all-Pac-12 selection, earning second-team honors as a sophomore and landing on the first team his junior and senior seasons. In 2020-21, Martin led the Pac-12 with 19.1 points per game, including 21.5 points per game in conference play. Martin brings career totals of 1,754 points, 466 assists, 151 steals and 176 three-point field goals made to Kansas.
The watch list for the Cousy Award will be narrowed down to 10 in late January and to five in late February. In March, the five finalists will be presented to Mr. Cousy and the Hall of Fame’s selection committee and a winner will be selected.
