Cousy Award omits Wright from original list of nominees
Hoyas point guard Chris Wright—who at the time was averaging 13 points and six assists a game—was nowhere to be found on the list of 66 nominees.
Basketball analysts around the country began scratching their heads when they saw the list of nominees. Along with Wright, Syracuse’s Scoop Jardine and Cal State Fullerton’s Perry Webster were noticeably absent from the list. ESPN’s Eamonn Brennan pointed out that, despite these absences, the nominees still included Cleveland State’s Norris Cole and Cole Norris (even though Cole Norris does not exist).
