Michigan's Charles Matthews and Michigan State's Cassius Winston each picked up another preseason accolade on Monday.

Matthews, a redshirt junior wing, and Winston, a junior guard, were among 50 players named to the Naismith Trophy watch list, an award that recognizes the men’s college basketball player of the year.

They were two of eight Big Ten players to make the list, along with Indiana’s Romeo Langford and Juwan Morgan, Purdue’s Carsen Edwards, Wisconsin’s Ethan Happ, Minnesota’s Jordan Murphy and Nebraska’s James Palmer Jr.

A midseason list of 30 players will be released on Feb. 13, followed by the 10 national semifinalists on March 4 and four finalists on March 19. The trophy will be awarded at April 7 during the Final Four in Minneapolis.
