Luka Garza Denied Another Postseason Award
You wouldn't blame Luka Garza one bit for being a little bitter after getting swept by Dayton's Obi Toppin for all of the postseason awards in college basketball. Toppin completed the sweep Tuesday as he was named the winner of the John R. Wooden Award. But that's not Luka Garza. He took to Twitter to congratulate Toppin.
Toppin also won the Naismith Player of the Year Award and was named the AP Player of the Year. Garza was the national player of the year choice of Sporting News, Basketball Times, Stadium, The Athletic, Bleacher Report, ESPN, and was the Big Ten Player of the Year. The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports that Garza was awarded the Karem Abdul Jabaar Award for the top collegiate center on Tuesday.
You can bet Garza will use all this as fuel for one could be an amazing senior season. He'll be the favorite for every award he won and lost this offseason.
