BOSTON – Three Southern Conference men’s basketball student-athletes earned spots on the 2019-20 Lou Henson Award preseason watch list, CollegeInsider.com announced Wednesday. ETSU’s Jeromy Rodriguez, Furman’s Jordan Lyons and UNC Greensboro’s Isaiah Miller appear on the initial 50-man list.

The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the nation's top Division I mid-major player. Wofford guard Fletcher Magee won the 2018-19 award after his record-breaking senior season in which he set the NCAA Division I career 3-pointer record.

The award honors Henson, the former Illinois and New Mexico State coach who won 775 games in 41 seasons. Henson is the winningest coach in Illinois basketball history with 423 victories. During his 21 seasons (1975-1996), Henson led the Fighting Illini to 16 postseason appearances, including 12 NCAA tournaments and a Final Four appearance in 1989.

The 2019-20 Lou Henson National Player of the Year Award will be announced in April 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, site of the men's Division I NCAA Basketball Championship.

ETSU’s Rodriguez was the only SoCon player to average a double-double last season, as he scored 11.2 points per game and pulled down 10.9 rebounds per contest. Furman’s Lyons matched the NCAA Division I record with 15 3-pointers in a contest last year, scoring 54 points – tied for 10th in a game in SoCon history – in a win over North Greenville. Miller, who became just the second SoCon player to ever record more than 100 steals in a season with 104 last season, was the SoCon Defensive Player of the Year and entered this season as the preseason SoCon Player of the Year.
