Three Kentucky Wildcats have been named to midseason awards watch lists for their outstanding performances this season.
Reid Travis, Keldon Johnson and Rhyne Howard have been recognized for their performance by being named to the lists.
Travis was named to the Lute Olson Award Midseason Top 30 list. He isn’t eligible for the award itself (the award excludes freshmen and transfers) and is given to the top Division I player annually. Travis can however be named to the Lute Olson All-America team.
Travis has been a key player for the Wildcats so far this season, averaging nearly 14 points and six rebounds per game, good for second on the team in both categories. If Kentucky makes a run in March, Travis figures to have a big role.
Keldon Johnson was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 list. Johnson, Kentucky’s leading scorer, is one of five freshmen and three players from the SEC to make the list.
Johnson leads the team in scoring (15.6 ppg) and has been the top three-point shooter at just over 39 percent to go along with 5.6 rebounds per game. Johnson has been one of Kentucky’s most consistent players throughout the year and figures to be one of the leaders of this team down the stretch.
Howard was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 list. Howard is doing it all for Matthew Mitchell’s squad, leading them to a #16 ranking and leading the team in scoring and rebounding while being second in assists, steals, blocks, and three pointers. The 6’2 freshman is averaging 17 points and 7 rebounds per game.
Congrats to Keldon, Reid, and Rhyne!
