The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame announced the preseason watch list for the Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year Award, and Villanova’s Justin Moore was among the 20 players on the list. The award recognizes the top shooting guard in men’s college basketball each year.

The fifth-year senior has averaged 13.2 points per game in his career, alongside 4 boards. After recovering from an achilles tear in the 2022 Elite 8, Moore returned for the final 13 games of 2023 where he averaged 13.5 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 34.1% from behind the arc.

Villanova opens their 2023-24 campaign on Monday, November 6th, when they host American at the Finneran Pavilion.
