Gonzaga senior Josh Perkins is one of 10 candidates for the Bob Cousy Award, presented to the point guard of the year.

Perkins ranks sixth nationally with 154 assists. He averages 6.7 assists and his 3.5 assist-to-turnover ratio paces the WCC. He’s third in program history with 632 assists. No. 1 Matt Santangelo finished with 668 and No. 2 Blake Stepp had 640.
