BOSTON, Mass. -- The twenty-five finalists for the 2013 Lou Henson Award were announced on Monday. The award is presented annually to the top mid-major player in college basketball and Long Beach State's own James Ennis has been named a finalist. He is the only player from the Big West Conference to be named a finalist.
Ennis is currently riding a 32-consecutive game double-digit scoring streak, has had six double-doubles and seven games above 20 points this season. He is averaging 17.5 points/game, 6.7 rebounds/game and is shooting 84% from the free throw line.
For the second straight year CollegeInsider.com is working with Point3 Basketball to promote the Lou Henson award "fan vote," which will constitute 33% of the final vote.
The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the top Mid-Major player in Division I college basketball. The award is named in honor of Lou Henson who retired after a spectacular coaching career that lasted 41 years. When he left the game in 2005 he was sixth all-time in career Division I wins with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New Mexico State. He is one of only 12 coaches in the history of the game to take two schools to the Final Four.
The 2013 Award will be presented at the CollegeInsider.com awards banquet in Atlanta, site of the men's NCAA Basketball Championship.
