Iowa’s Luka Garza was named a first-team All-American by CBS Sports, NBC Sports, and USA TODAY on Monday.
The first teams of all three organizations were the same. The Hawkeye junior center was joined by Dayton’s Obi Toppin, Kansas’ Udoka Azbuike, Marquette’s Markus Howard, and Oregon’s Payton Pritchard.
He averaged 23.9 points and 9.8 rebounds this season. He is one of three Big Ten players to ever total 740 points and 305 rebounds in the same season, and the first since Purdue’s Glenn Robinson in 1994.
