DURHAM, N.C. - The Atlanta Tipoff Club announced Jon Scheyer as one of 30 midseason candidates for the 2010 Naismith Trophy, awarded annually to the collegiate national player of the year.

Scheyer ranks in the top 50 nationally in six different categories and is the only player in the ACC to rank in the top 10 in eight separate categories. He is averaging a team-high 18.9 points and 5.4 assists per game. He has scored 20 or more points an ACC-high 13 times, including eight of the 13 conference games.

Scheyer is a finalist for several other awards, including the Wooden Award, Oscar Robertson Trophy, Bob Cousy Award and Lowe's Senior Class Award.

Among the 30 candidates for the award are six players from the ACC. Joining Scheyer are Al-Farouq Aminu (Wake Forest), Trevor Booker (Clemson), Sylven Landesberg (Virginia), Gani Lawal (Georgia Tech) and Greivis Vasquez (Maryland).

On March 21, CBS will announce the four Naismith Trophy finalists during its first-round coverage of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. The recipient of the award will be announced at the NCAA Final Four in Indianapolis, Ind.
