    The Naismith Trophy Watch List was published on Thursday morning. In its 50th year, the list is composed of the top-50 players in college basketball for the upcoming season and is cut to 30 players in mid-February.

    Nine players from the ACC are represented while the Big Ten, Pac-12, and SEC each have eight student-athletes on the ballot.

    Four Duke players made the cut along with three from USC and Arizona. The four Duke players are senior G Grayson Allen, freshman F Marvin Bagley III, freshman F Wendell Carter, Jr., and freshman G Trevon Duval.

    Last year’s award winner was Kansas guard Frank Mason.

    Here are this year’s preseason candidates.
