Kentucky freshman forward Julius Randle has been selected as one of 15 players on the USBWA watch list for the 2013-14 Oscar Robertson Trophy honoring the nation's top player.

The 6-foot-9 McDonald's All-American from Dallas averaged 18.5 points and 11.5 rebounds in the Wildcats' two exhibition victories. He shot 68 percent from the floor against Transylvania and Montevallo.

It was the second honor in as many days for Randle, who was also included Monday on the USBWA's watch list for the Wayman Tisdale Award honoring the nation's top freshman.

The USBWA will announce its 2013-14 All-America Team in March. At that time, finalists will also be chosen for the player of the year. Once finalists are announced, the entire USBWA membership will vote for the winner of the Oscar Robertson Trophy.

In 2012, Anthony Davis became the first-ever Kentucky recipient of the Oscar Robertson Trophy. Michigan’s Trey Burke took home the honor in 2013.
