UCLA senior center Kai Maiava has been named to the 2011 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List. The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the nation’s top center.
The list includes 14 returning players from the 2010 Watch List, including Maiava. In all, there are 42 players on the Watch List.
Maiava missed the entire 2010 season due to a fractured left ankle suffered during the Fall Scrimmage. He started all 12 regular-season games in 2009 after sitting out the 2008 season following his transfer from Colorado.
