Jerry West Award
Jerry West was on the fast track to stardom from the day he touched a basketball. Throughout the games history, it would be hard to find a better pure shooter. At West Virginia University, West averaged 24.8 points and 13.3 rebounds per game in his three varsity seasons. In 1959, he led the Mountaineers to the NCAA Finals and captured the tournament's Most Outstanding Player award. In a superlative senior season, West was a consensus All-American and led West Virginia to its third consecutive conference championship.
