Gonzaga sophomore forward Filip Petrusev is one of 46 players on the initial watch list for the Oscar Robertson Trophy, awarded annually to the national player of the year.

Petrusev paces Gonzaga in scoring (15.7), rebounding (8.4), blocks (1.3), made field goals (58) and made free throws (40). The 6-foot-11 native of Serbia is shooting 53% from the field and has three double-doubles.

Petrusev is joined on the watch list by several players on Gonzaga’s upcoming schedule, including North Carolina’s Cole Anthony, Detroit Mercy’s Antoine Davis, Jordan Ford of Saint Mary’s and Arizona’s Zeke Nnaji.

The Zags have played against two others on the watch list: Oregon’s Payton Pritchard and Michigan’s Jon Teske.
