Utah Basketball: Jakob Poeltl up for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award Friday night

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

As is standard now, not just in college but in the pros, there is an awards show tonight that will announce the winners of various awards, including the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award for the nations best center, which Utah's own Jakob Poeltl is up for. Poeltl is one of 10 finalists for the award along with:

Moses Kingsley, Arkansas

Josh Scott, Colorado

Egidijus Mockevicius, Evansville

Domantas Sabonis, Gonzaga

Zach Auguste, Notre Dame

AJ Hammons, Purdue

Ben Bentil, Providence

Josh Hawkinson, Washington State

Joel Bolomboy, Weber State

It's cool to see two other Pac-12ers on the list with Scott and Hawkinson, as well as a Weber State guy with Bolomboy.

Poeltl is likely one of the front runners, as he's up for many awards across the country as well.

You can catch the show tonight at 6pm MT on ESPN2.
