3 UConn players on Naismith watch list

The UConn trio of Moriah Jefferson, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Breanna Stewart are among 50 players on the Naismith Trophy watch list.

New Haven native Bria Holmes, a junior guard at West Virginia, is also among the candidates for the prestigious national player of the year award.

Mosqueda-Lewis is UConn's leading scorer, averaging 17 points per game and is 16 3-pointers away from setting the Huskies' career mark.

Stewart, last year's winner, is averaging 16.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and is one of four UConn players with at least 20 assists.

Jefferson is averaging 9.6 points and has a team-leading 33 assists.

Holmes is averaging 24.1 points per game, which ranks sixth nationally. Holmes and Washington's Kelsey Plum are the only one of the nation's top 10 scorers on the watch list.
