Iowa’s Garza named to trio of All-American teams

IOWA CITY University of Iowa men’s basketball junior Luka Garza was named a first-team All-American by CBS Sports, NBC Sports, and USA Today on Monday.

Joining Garza on all three of the five-player lists are Dayton’s Obi Toppin, Udoka Azbuike of Kansas, Marquette’s Markus Howard, and Oregon’s Payton Pritchard.

Last week, Sporting News tabbed Garza its National Player of the Year and a first-team All-American. Garza is the first player in Iowa history to earn national player of the year distinction.

The Washington, D.C., native is a finalist for five national awards: Naismith Trophy, Oscar Robertson Trophy, Wooden Award, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award, and the Lute Olson Award.

Garza (740 points and 305 rebounds) is one of three Big Ten players to ever total 740+ points and 300+ rebounds in a single-season.
