Jays point guard Maurice Watson named honorable mention on Sports Illustrated All-American team

Creighton point guard Maurice Watson's list of accolades continues to grow rapidly.

On Thursday, he was named an All-American honorable mention by Sports Illustrated.

The 5-foot-10 senior has been gaining plenty of attention as of late. Recently, he was named to the Bob Cousy Award watch list, given to the best point guard in the country. He was also recognized with preseason first-team All-Big East honors.

Watson led Creighton last year with 14.1 points and 6.5 assists per game. His 229 assists in 2015-16 were second-most in Creighton history and ranked ninth nationally.
