Karl Malone Award watch list announced

1 Comment

The top 16 watch list for the Karl Malone Award, given to the nation’s top power forward, has been announced.

The only issue I have with this list is that Arizona’s Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is on it. He’s not a power forward, even if he plays like it sometimes. He’s a small forward and has even gotten some work as a backup point guard for the Wildcats this season.
