UW senior forward Jon Brockman today was named among the 30 finalists for the Naismith award -- awarded annually to the college game's best player.
"Awesome," coach Lorenzo Romar said. "He deserves it, that's for sure. Whatever accolades Jon Brockman gets, he's much deserving of it."
"It's an honor," Brockman said. "Looking at the list, there's a lot of great players on there. A lot of guys I know, so I'll be able to call them and congratulate them. But it's just an honor to be on the list, and a pretty cool thing."
