Chosen by a preseason poll of national college basketball experts, the list is comprised of 50 student-athletes who are the early front-runners for one of college basketball's most prestigious individual honors. The Big 12 has won the award the previous two seasons, with OU senior guard Buddy Hield taking it home in 2016 and Frank Mason winning it last season.

Nineteen players on the list are seniors, headlined by A'ja Wilson, last season's most outstanding player at the Final Four who led SC to the 2017 NCAA title. Arizona and Duke are tied with the most players on the watch list with three.
