STARKVILLE, Miss. - For Arnett Moultrie, the accolades continue to come his way.

On Monday, two days after dropping 21 points on Auburn in a 91-88 win, the Mississippi State junior forward was named one of 20 finalists to the 2012 Oscar Robertson Trophy Midseason Watch List.

The Memphis native currently leads the SEC with 13 double-doubles and rebounds per game (11.1). He's also a finalist for the prestigious Wooden Award.

"It's a real honor," said Moultrie, who leads MSU with a 17.0 scoring clip. "But it's not about me. It's about the team."

Members of the U.S. Basketball Writers Association board of directors chose 20 players as contenders for the Oscar Robertson Trophy. The trophy will be in New Orleans at the USBWA's College Basketball Awards Breakfast on March 30.

The USBWA has named a National Player of the Year since the 1958-59 season. In 1998, the award was named in honor of the University of Cincinnati Hall of Famer and two-time USBWA Player of the Year Oscar Robertson.

MSU, ranked No. 18 in this week's poll, plays Ole Miss at 6 p.m. on Thursday in a game televised by ESPN2.
