Arizona guard Allonzo Trier on Jerry West finalist snub: ‘See what I do the rest of the season’


Arizona-Allonzo Trier-Jerry West Award

Fresh off a 22-point performance in the Pac-12 tournament quarterfinals against Colorado, Arizona junior guard Allonzo Trier was asked why he wasn’t named a finalist for the Jerry West Award given to college basketball’s top shooting guard.

Never one to lack confidence, Trier didn’t disappoint with his response:

“Go look at my numbers, I think it speaks for itself,” Trier said. “I think I probably should have won the award, if anything. It’s alright, you saw what I did today. You’ll see what I do the rest of the season.”

The 6-foot-5 Trier is averaging 19 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game this season, shooting 52.2 percent overall and 40.4 percent from 3-point range. He was 10 of 10 from the foul line in the 83-67 win against Colorado, the fifth time this season he’s made at least 10 free throws.

Trier wasn’t one of the five players listed as Jerry West Award finalists. Those picked were Duke senior Grayson Allen, Purdue sophomore Carsen Edwards, Creighton senior Marcus Foster, Oakland senior Kendrick Nunn and Boston College junior Jerome Robinson.

Trier averages more points per game than Allen and Edwards and has a better 3-point shooting rate than Allen and Nunn.
