Hachimura is averaging a team-best 20.2 points per outing, shooting 60 percent from the field. He is adding 6.4 rebounds per game.

On March 4 the list will narrow to 10 national semifinalists.

The 2019 Citizen Naismith Trophy will be awarded at the Naismith Awards Brunch on April 7 during the Final Four in Minneapolis. Only players on the midseason team are eligible to advance to the next round.
