Earlier this month, Knight was recognized as a preseason All-CAA First Team selection. He was a First Team All-CAA and All-Defensive Team selection at the end of last season along with earning a place on the Lou Henson All-America Team.

Surprisingly, Grant Riller was not among the initial 20-man watch list for the Bob Cousy Award.

Riller’s 21.9 ppg in 2018-19 ranks would rank third among the 20 nominees, while his 4.1 apg would place him 10th. Riller’s player efficiency rating of 28.8 in 2018-19 (per College Basketball Reference) would rate first among nominees.

William & Mary’s Nathan Knight was among the top big men in the country in 2018-19 and put himself into elite company. Averaging 21.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.3 blocks in 2018-19, Knight joined Tim Duncan as the only other Division I player since1992 to average at least 20.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg 3.0 apg and 2.0 bpg in a season.

Among returning players, Charleston’s Grant Riller posted the highest offensive rating for players used on over 28-percent of a team’s possessions, per Ken Pomeroy. Knight had the fourth-best offensive rating among returning players.
