Calendars have switched over to February, and the stretch run has kicked in for every team in the country. The push for conference titles and post-season berths are in high gear, and players will bring their best efforts to the hardwood night in and night out.

With the end of the season near, it’s time to think about individual awards in the NCAA. Starting at the end of February, we will be opening the fan-voting for the 2nd Annual Fan-Voted All-American awards.

But, we also hand out our own hardware here at College Court Report. With that, it’s time to put out some watch lists to give you an idea of where we are leaning in terms of overall awards.

Here is the latest edition of the Mid-Major Player of the Year Watch List.

We looked at statistics of each player, and the overall impact that each player has on their team. While the selections may not be the best player on their respective team, they are a key cog in the process, and that weighs heavily in our decisions.

Take a scroll down to see who cracks the Top 10 in the second edition of the CCR Mid-Major Player of the Year Watch List, to be updated every Friday!
