Fifty college point guards were nominated last week for the Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award.
And Seton Hall’s Jordan Thedore did not make the list.
This despite the fact that Theodore, a senior from Englewood, N.J., leads the Big East in assists (7.3 apg), ranks 13th in scoring (15.8 ppg) and ranks ninth in steals (1.8 spg). (Seton Hall’s Fuquan Edwin leads the league in steals at 3.3).
“I don’t understand how a guy leading the league in assists is not on the list for best point guards,” Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard told SNY.tv. “He’s playing great.”
Theodore went for a career-high 26 points and added eight assists Friday when Seton Hall won its eighth straight, 87-61, at Longwood.
Seton Hall is 11-1 on the season, thanks largely to Theodore and senior power forward Herb Pope, who is helping his pro stock by leading the nation in double-doubles with eight.
“I think [Theodore] is playing at a really good level,” Willard said. “Probably for  out of the  games this year he’s just been spectacular.”
