RALEIGH - NC State junior point guard Lorenzo Brown has been selected as one of 20 finalists for the 2013 Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award.


Brown's 6.7 assists per game lead the ACC and he is second in the conference in steals with 2.2 per game. His assist per game average is the highest since Chris Corchiani averaged 9.6 per game in 1990-91. Brown is the Wolfpack's second leading scorer at 13.1 points per contest (18th, ACC) and averages a team-best 33.4 points per game.


The annual honor, named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, recognizes the top point guards in men's college basketball.


The current listing of 20 finalists for the 2013 Bob Cousy Award will be narrowed down to 10 players in early February and then down five players by early March. The final five players in contention for the award will be presented to Mr. Cousy and the Hall of Fame's selection committee. The Hall of Fame committee is made up of top college basketball personnel including media members, head coaches, Sports Information Directors and Hall of Famers. The winner of the 2013 Bob Cousy Award will be presented at the Hall of Fame's Class announcement on Championship Monday in Atlanta as part of NCAA Final Four weekend.
