Wisconsin senior guard Trevon Hughes is still in the running to win the Cousy Award, given annually to the top male point guard in the country. Hughes was named one of 11 finalists after the pool was trimmed from 20.
Hughes leads the Badgers in scoring (15.5) and steals (1.6). He also ranks second in assists (3.1) and is third in rebounds (4.8).
The list of 11 finalists is to be trimmed to five players by March 1. The winner of the 2010 Cousy Award is to be announced on April 5 in Indianapolis as part of the NCAA’s Final Four weekend.
The Badgers, fresh off of their win over Michigan State in Madison on Tuesday night, will travel to Ann Arbor on Saturday to face Michigan. Wisconsin won the first match-up this season, 54-48 at the Kohl Center on January 20.
