Daniel Hamilton, Rodney Purvis earn Erving Award consideration

For what it's worth, Daniel Hamilton and Rodney Purvis have both been named to the 2016 Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year Award watch list. I thought of Purvis as more of a two-guard, but what do I know?

Four different lists were announced on Tuesday: Erving, as well as the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year, Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year and Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year. No other Huskies are on the lists. I thought Sterling Gibbs might make the Cousy list, but it's a long season.

And if you're wondering about the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Center of the Year list, that will be released on Friday. I'd expect Amida Brimah to make that one.
