Maryland men’s basketball forward Julian Reese was named to the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award watch list. The award recognizes the top power forward in Division I men’s college basketball.
Reese is one of two forwards in the Big Ten named to the preseason watch list, with the other being Coleman Hawkins from Illinois.
This is the third straight year that Maryland has had a player on the list, with current fifth-year forward Donta Scott named the last two years.
Reese is coming off a stellar sophomore season, averaging 11.4 points per game and a team-high 7.2 rebounds per game. He also had the third-best single-season field goal percentage (.632) in program history. Reese posted seven double-doubles and blocked 42 shots.
