NUNN NAMED TO LUTE OLSON AWARD MID-SEASON WATCH LIST
Jan. 12, 2018

BOSTON -- Oakland’s Kendrick Nunn has been named to the 2017-18 Lute Olson Award mid-season Watch List. Nunn, a redshirt senior from Chicago, is averaging 25.7 points per game which is currently second in the NCAA. He leads the nation in three-point field goals per game, three-point field goal attempts and three pointers made.

A total of 30 players were selected to the list, with Nunn being the sole Horizon League player to earn a spot. He was also named to the Lou Henson Award mid-season Watch List, presented annually to the nation's top Division I mid-major player.

The Lute Olson Award is presented annually to the nation's top Division I player who has played at least two seasons. Freshmen and junior college transfers are eligible to be named to the watch lists and the All-America team, but the recipient of the Olson award is a player who has played multiple seasons of Division I college basketball.

Lute Olson won 780 games in 34 seasons, 24 of which were spent at the University of Arizona. During that stretch, he led the Wildcats to 11 Pac-10 Conference titles, 23 consecutive NCAA Tournaments, four Final Four appearances and a National Championship in 1997.

The 2017-18 Lute Olson National Player of the Year Award will be announced on March 31, 2018 at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Event in San Antonio, site of the men's NCAA Basketball Championship.
