Gonzaga senior Killian Tillie is one of five finalists for the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award.
Tillie averaged 15.1 points in West Coast Conference play and 13.6 points overall. The 6-foot-10 forward is five points from reaching 1,000 career points. He’s made 44.8% of his career 3-point attempts.
The other finalists are BYU’s Yoeli Childs, Dayton’s Obi Toppin, Maryland’s Jalen Smith and Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry.
Tillie and Childs were named first-team All-WCC earlier this week.
Fan voting for the Malone Award begins Friday at hoophallawards.com. The winner will be determined by a combination of fan voting and the Hall of Fame selection committee.
