Caleb Mills Named to Naismith Trophy Preseason Watch List
POSTED: November 19, 2020 -- 11:35 a.m. CT
Thursday morning, Houston Cougars sophomore guard Caleb Mills was named to the Jersey Mike's Naismith Trophy Preseason Watch List. Mills was one of 50 college players from schools across the nation to be named to the List.
"The beginning of the season is filled with excitement, optimism and anticipation as each team and every player is undefeated, making the race for the Jersey Mike's Naismith Trophy wide open. While these 50 candidates are those to keep an eye on, there will be plenty of others who will enter the competition throughout the season," said Eric Oberman, executive director of the Atlanta Tipoff Club. "This year will be especially exciting as players who were unable to finish their seasons last year have even more to prove."
A list of the midseason 30 team will be released in early February, followed by the 10 national semifinalists and four finalists on March 4, 2021, and March 16, 2021, respectively. Players who do not make the watch list are still eligible to be selected for the midseason 30 team. The 2021 Jersey Mike's Naismith Trophy will be awarded during the Final Four at the Naismith Awards Brunch on April 4, 2021.
