Ohio State Basketball team honored for Big Ten Championship

Evan Turner Big Ten Player of the Year (espn)

No surprise to anyone that covers Big Ten Conference as members of the media or fans that follow the league. Evan Turner was named the Player of the Year on Monday by both the league coaches and media while Thad Matta was selected as the conference coach of the year by league media.

Turner was the unanimous selection by the media for the top honor and was picked on all ballots by coaches and media as a 2010 First Team All-Big Ten honoree. He is the fifth Ohio State player to earn the award and the sixth all-time. Dennis Hopson was the 1987 recipient. Jim Jackson won it twice (1991, 1992) followed by Scoonie Penn (1999) and Terrence Dials (2006).

Matta was selected as the league’s top coach for the third time in his sixth season in Columbus. He is the fourth Ohio State coach to earn the honor, won eight times previously: Eldon Miller (1983), Randy Ayers (1991, 1992), Jim O’Brien (1999, 2001) and Matta (2006, 2007, 2010).

All five Ohio State starters were honored in the annual voting for the Big Ten’s best.

The League’s media selected David Lighty and William Buford, Third Team All-Big Ten while selecting Jon Diebler to the Honorable Mention squad.

Big Ten coaches put Buford on the Third Team. Lighty and Diebler were selected Honorable Mention. Dallas Lauderdale was elected to the Big Ten’s All-Defensive Team.

Ohio State shared the Big Ten regular-season title with Purdue and Michigan State, all with 14-4 conference records.  The Buckeyes started the conference season 0-2 and 1-3 but took Thad Matta’s coaching  direction to win 13 of their final 14 conference games, including a streak of six-consecutive road games.

Evan Turner led the conference in scoring (19.5 ppg), rebounding (9.4 rpg) and was second in assists (5.8 apg). No player in the history of the Big Ten has finished among the Top 2 in those three categories in a given year. Turner also was second in steals with (1.8 apg).
