UNC's Kendall Marshall Wins Bob Cousy Award

University of North Carolina’s starting point guard Kendall Marshall won the Bob Cousy Award, according to ESPN.

Marshall was selected over Murray State’s Isaiah Canaan, St. Mary’s Matthew Dellavedova, Weber State’s Damian Lillard and Kansas’ Tyshawn Taylor. Marshall is the third Tar Heel to win the award, joining Raymond Felton in 2005 and Ty Lawson in 2009.

 “Kendall had one of the finest season-long performances by a point guard that I can remember, so it is fitting for him to win the Bob Cousy Award,” UNC coach Roy Williams said in a prepared statement.

“He made it almost routine to have a game with 10 or more assists, something that just doesn’t happen on a regular basis. He is a coach’s dream -- the way he runs the team on the floor, exemplifies great leadership and makes each of his teammates better. He set standards that will be hard for college point guards to match in years to come.”

Although the Tar Heels lost to Kansas in the NCAA regional final last Sunday, he led the nation in assists and assist-error ratio and finished second in country in assists per game. Prior to his injury he set an ACC record with 351 assists, fourth most in NCAA single-season history.

He also became UNC’s all-time leader in assist average (7.96 per game) and the ACC’s career leader in assist-error ratio (3.01). He set an ACC single-season record with 17 double-figure assist games, and holds five of UNC’s top eight all-time single-game assist totals.
