WASHINGTON - Georgetown University senior men's basketball player Markel Starks (Accokeek, Md./Georgetown Prep) was selected to the Watch List for the 2014 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award, announced by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The annual honor, named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtics guard Bob Cousy, recognizes the top point guards in men's college basketball. The list was created by a committee of well-respected media members and influential people within college basketball from around the country.

Starks, who was selected to the Preseason All-BIG EAST First Team, is one of four returning starters for Georgetown, picked to finish in second place in the BIG EAST Conference.

Last year, Starks finished second on the team in scoring with 12.8 points per game, led the team in assists (96, 3.0 per game) and with 63 three-point field goals. He ranked sixth in the BIG EAST in three-point field goal percentage (41.7%) and was 12th in the league in three-point field goals made. Starks reached double figures in scoring 21 times last season, including four games with at least 20 points.

Starks was one of four players from the BIG EAST selected to the Watch List and among a group of 45 Division I players tabbed. The list of candidates will be narrowed down to a final 20 in early February, then final five in early March.

Georgetown finished the 2012-13 season with a 25-7 record and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Hoyas won a share of the BIG EAST Regular Season Championship and were the No. 1 seed in the tournament after posting a 14-4 record in league play. The Hoyas were ranked No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and No. 8 in the USA Today Coaches' poll and closed out the regular season with 12 wins in 13 games.

The Hoyas open the 2013 regular season against Oregon in the Armed Forces Classic, being played at Camp Humphreys in South Korea on Friday, Nov. 8 on ESPN.
