Creighton's Marcus Foster named to Naismith Trophy Watch List

Creighton guard Marcus Foster has been named one of the 50 candidates for the Citizen Naismith Trophy, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced today.

"We are proud to recognize our former winners during this special season and reflect on the heritage and tradition of the past 50 years," Eric Oberman, executive director of the Atlanta Tipoff Club said.  "There are tremendously talented candidates vying to win the 50th Citizen Naismith Trophy and that process starts today."

Foster was a unanimous selection for the All-BIG EAST team last season after averaging 18.2 points per game. 

Creighton alum Doug McDermott is the lone Bluejay to win the trophy in the school's history in 2013-14. 

Creighton opens the 2017-18 season on Friday when it meets Yale in a game scheduled for 8 p.m. Central.
