Haliburton named to Naismith watch list

AMES (KWWL) — Iowa State sophomore Tyrese Haliburton was one of 50 basketball players named to the Naismith Trophy Player of the Year watch list.

The recognition comes after the Cyclone guard was named to the preseason All-Big 12 team. Haliburton played all 35 games as a freshman and averaged 6.8 points, 3.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals.

This past summer, Haliburton helped Team USA win a gold medal at the Men’s U-19 World Cup.
