The United States Basketball Writers Association announced the midseason watch list for the 2015 Wayman Tisdale Award, which honors the country’s top freshman, and IU freshman guard James Blackmon Jr. was among the 14 midseason candidates.
The complete watch list, per a USBWA press release issued earlier this afternoon, is available after the jump:
2014-15 WAYMAN TISDALE AWARD MIDSEASON WATCH LIST
Noah Vonleh was on the midseason watch list for the award last season, Yogi Ferrell was on it during the 2012-2013 season and Cody Zeller was on the midseason watch list for the 2011-2012 season.
The USBWA has chosen a national freshman of the year since the 1988-89 season, but an Indiana player has never won the award.
