For the second consecutive year, Maryland men’s basketball forward Donta Scott has been named to the Karl Malone Award Watch List. The list recognizes this season’s projected top 20 collegiate players at the power forward position.

Scott is the only Terp to be named to the list since current Indiana Pacer Jalen Smith prior to the 2019-2020 season.

The six-foot-eight forward is the Terps’ top returning scorer and again will be one of the main focal points of Maryland’s offense this season. During last year’s campaign, Scott averaged 12.6 points per game and led the team in rebounds at 6.2 per game.

Scott will also look to surpass the 1,000 career points milestone, as he currently has 926 total points scored.

At the end of January, the watch list will be whittled down to 10 players, and then to five finalists in late February. A winner will be chosen by Malone, the former Utah Jazz superstar, and the Basketball Hall of Fame’s selection committee in March.
