Terrence Ross named to Naismith Preseason Watch List

The Atlanta Tipoff Club announced its 2011-12 Naismith preseason watch list today. This year’s list includes the top 50 men’s college basketball players from 34 schools around the country, including Washington sophomore Terrence Ross.
The watch list was compiled by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, which based its criteria on player performances from the previous year and expectations for the 2011-12 college basketball season. The Naismith Trophy will be awarded at the 2012 NCAA Men’s Final Four in New Orleans.
In late February, the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors will compile a mid-season team of the top 30 players in the nation. Then in March, the Naismith Trophy voting academy will vote to narrow the list to the four finalists.
Ross is one of three Pac-12 players on the list including UCLA junior forward Reeves Nelson and sophomore center Joshua Smith.
Here’s more information on the Naismith Awards.
