SPORTS SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: Tony Tchani, Columbus Crew midfielder

The Columbus Crew on Friday acquired midfielder Tony Tchani from Toronto FC in exchange for defender Andy Iro and midfielder Leandre Griffit.  As a Generation adidas player, Tchani will not count against the Crew’s salary cap this season.

The 22-year-old Tchani, a native of Duola, Cameroon, Tchani was drafted by the New York Red Bulls in the first round (#2 overall) of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft. In his first professional season, he appeared in 27 matches, starting 17, scoring a goal and adding three assists.

Tchani made his MLS debut as a second half substitute in a 1-0 win over Chicago on March 20, 2010 and his first MLS start a 4-0 loss to San Jose on May 8 of the same season. He recorded his first career MLS goal against the Crew on May 20 and his first career assist on a Rafa Marquez goal at Toronto on August 21.

Tchani started the 2011 season in New York, then he was dealt to Toronto FC on April 1, as part of the Dwayne De Rosario trade.

While at Toronto, he started in 13 matches, compiling 1,032 minutes and scoring one goal, against the Crew, on April 23, in a 1-1 draw at BMO Field.

Tchani, who is 6’4, is out of the University of Virginia where he spent two years before entering the MLS SuperDraft. During his time at UVA he helped lead the Cavaliers to the 2009 NCAA Men’s College Cup, was a First Team All-American selection by the NSCAA, earned spots on the ACC and NCAA College Cup All-Tournament teams and earned 2008 ACC Freshman of the Year honors after recording nine goals and three assists.

Sullinger wins Tisdale freshman award

The United States Basketball Writers Association last summer felt that it was time to rename their freshman of the year award in honor of the late Wayman Tisdale, who in 1983 at Oklahoma was a first-team All-American as a freshman.

The winner of the first Wayman Tisdale Award is a freshman as well.

Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger received the award during a banquet in Oklahoma City earlier in the week. Sullinger was voted a first-team All-American this season after helping the Buckeyes to a #1 ranking entering the NCAA Tournament.

Sullinger was unstoppable at times this season, averaging 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds.

The soft-spoken Sullinger told a worried Buckeye nation that after the team lost to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament on March 25, that he would be returning to the basketball program as a sophomore.
