Ohio State's Aaron Craft was named a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, annually given to the nation's top point guard.

The original list of 47 candidates was narrowed down to the below watch list of six student athletes by a nationally based committee.

In conference play, Craft became the second Big Ten player in the past three years to lead the conference in both assists (4.6 apg) and steals (2.7 spg). He is also the second Big Ten player since at least 1982-83 to lead the conference in steals in three different seasons, a feat also accomplished by Illinois' Bruce Douglas from 1984-86. Craft passed Douglas for the Big Ten career steals record this season.

Craft was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year for the second time in the past three years. He was also tabbed second-team All-Big Ten by the media contingent and a third-team selection by the Big Ten's 12 coaches.

The winner of the 2014 Bob Cousy Award will be presented in Dallas as part of Hall of Fame events at the Final Four.
