McGary on Preseason Robertson Trophy List

Mitch McGary has been named to the watch list for the Oscar Robertson Trophy presented by the United States Basketball Writers Association.

The preseason accolades just keep adding up for Mitch McGary.  Michigan’s sophomore big man is one of 15 candidates for the award.  He is joined on the list by Big Ten brethren Gary Harris, Adriean Payne, and Aaron Craft. 

Last year former Michigan point guard Trey Burke became Michigan’s second USBWA national player of the year, joining former Wolverine great Cazzie Russell who earned the distinction in 1988.

This marks McGary’s sixth preseason honor.  The versatile power forward has been named to the USA Today (first team), Sporting News (first team), Athlon Sports (second team), Blue Ribbon College Basketball (second team), and preseason All-Big Ten teams
