LSU senior guard Skylar Mays was named to the watch list for the 2020 Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year Award this week. Per

Named after Class of 1980 Hall of Famer and 1959 NCAA Final Four Most Valuable Player Jerry West, the annual honor in its sixth year recognizes the top shooting guards in Division I men's college basketball. A national committee of top college basketball personnel determined the watch list of 20 candidates.

Mays, who hails from Baton Rouge, was a CoSIDA Academic All-America the last two seasons (First Team in 2019, Second Team in 2018) and winner of the Jesse Owens Student GPA Award by the LSU Black Faculty/Staff Caucus. The second team All-SEC selection in 2019 and a preseason selection for second team All-SEC for this season, was the only player on the LSU team to play and start in all 35 games a season ago.

He had his best season as a Tiger averaging 13.4 points per game, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.9 steals. He made 86 percent of his free throws (129-of-150) and averaged a team best 33.1 minutes per game (fifth in the league) with 143 field goals and 55 three-pointers.
