4 Naismith Finalists Announced

Lonzo Ball, UCLA
  • The freshman set the tone early, recording a 19-point, 11-assist and 8-rebound performance against Pacific in his first college game
  • He leads the nation with 7.8 assists per game as a 6-foot-6 guard
  • Ball is the floor leader for the nation’s top-scoring team (91.3 points per game)
  • He won the 2016 Naismith national high school player of the year award
  • He was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year
  • Ball paces the Pac-12 with a league record for assists by a freshman with 241 (7.8 apg), and is second in the Pac-12 in steals (2.0 spg)

Josh Hart, Villanova
  • The 6-foot-5 senior led Villanova to its fourth straight Big East regular-season title and second conference-tournament championship in three years
  • He scored 29 points in the title-clinching win over Creighton and earned tournament MVP, becoming just the third player to win the tournament MVP award twice
  • He leads Villanova with 18.6 points — which tops the conference — and 6.5 rebounds, while handing out 3.0 assists per game
  • Was named Big East Player of the Year and Co-Defensive Player of the Year
  • Hart is one of only two players in Villanova history to amass at least 1,800 points, 700 rebounds, 250 assists and 150 steals

Frank Mason III, Kansas
  • Averages 20.8 points and is the first Kansas player to lead the Big 12 in scoring since 2004-05
  • First in the conference in 3-point field goal percentage (.487), while ranking fourth in assists (5.1 apg)
  • Vying to become the first player in Big 12 and Kansas history to average 20.0 points and 5.0 assists per game for a season
  • Mason totals 19 games of 20 or more points including six of his last seven and eight of his last 10 contests
  • Ranks ninth on the KU career scoring list at 1,796 and is tied for eighth in career assists at 552.

With Mason’s next assist he and Valentine will be the only two and should he score 28 points he will be the only one

Caleb Swanigan, Purdue

  • Helped lead Purdue to the Big Ten regular season championship and led the Boilermakers with 18.9 points and 12.6 rebounds per game in conference games
  • Swanigan is on pace to become the first major-college player since 1992-93 to have 600 points, 400 rebounds and 100 assists in a season
