UNI's Koch MVC Player of the Year

Posted:

 After helping UNI to a school-record 25 wins and the school's first outright regular-season crown in The Valley, Adam Koch has been named the 2010 Larry Bird MVC Player of the Year. The senior forward is UNI's "glue" this year -- helping the Panthers achieve the highest national ranking in school history (18), while also lead­ing the team to its most-ever league wins (15) since joining the Valley in 1991-92. He is the first player in league history to earn Player of the Year honors after not finishing in the Top 10 in the conference of any of the following statistical categories -- scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, or blocks.

 

The all-MVC announcement also included senior center Jordan Eglseder as a second-team choice along with honorable mention status for junior guard Kwadzo Ahelegbe and senior guard Ali Farokhmanesh.

 

League coaches selected a "Sixth Man Award" recipient, and this season's honor goes to UNI's Lucas O'Rear, for the second-straight year. The honor is presented to the league's top reserve player (one who has started fewer than 25 percent of his team's games). O'Rear averages 4.2 points and 4.5 rebounds and 19 minutes while appearing in 29 games, starting three. He's the first to ever win the award twice.
