The Karl Malone Award is one of the top awards in college basketball, with past winners going on to win the National Player of the Year Award. CBS Sports’s Andy Katz announced his Top 25 watch list for the 2020-2021 Karl Malone Award on Tuesday with a familiar name on the list.
West Virginia’s Derek Culver.
Culver returns to a West Virginia Mountaineers hoops team poised to be one of the top big guys in the Big 12.
“Culver is expected to be one of the most productive players on one of the best teams in the Big 12 this season,” Katz penned. “He and fellow big man Oscar Tshiebwe will hold down the front court for the Mountaineers. They combined for 21.6 points and 17.9 rebounds per game last season.”
The Mountaineers tip off their 2020-2021 season on November 25 versus Texas A&M.
