DURHAM, N.C. - Senior point guard Jon Scheyer was announced as one of six finalists for the Bob Cousy Award on Friday by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Joining Scheyer on the finalists list are Sherron Collins (Kansas), Scottie Reynolds (Villanova), Evan Turner (Ohio State), Greivis Vasquez (Maryland) and John Wall (Kentucky).

"These final six players have truly separated themselves from the rest of the pack in college basketball," said John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame. "Our committee has worked hard to narrow the field down and we look forward to recognizing a
winner that represents Bob Cousy's passion and skill for the game."

Scheyer has started in all 30 of Duke's games this season, helping lead the Blue Devils to a 25-5 record. The Northbrook, Ill. native, is averaging a team-high 18.8 points and 5.2 assists per game, while shooting .404 from behind the three-point line and an ACC-best .883 from the free throw line. He also leads the ACC with a 2.9:1 assist-to-turnover ratio.

The winner of the award given annually to the nation's top point guard will be announced on April 1 with the award presentation coming at the Final Four on Monday, April 5 as part of the Bob Cousy Award Breakfast and Basketball Hall of Fame Class Announcement.
