The University of Northern Iowa's ninth-year, men's basketball head coach Ben Jacobson has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year for the third time in his tenure with the Panthers.

Jacobson received 26 of a possible 47 first-place tallies and 115 total points to outdistance all other vote-getters.

Voting was conducted by league coaches, media and sports information directors. Wichita State's Gregg Marshall finished runner-up in the voting after earning the award for the past three seasons.

Jacobson guided the Panthers to a 27-3 mark, a school-record 16-game winning streak and a Top-10 national ranking this season. UNI was the only Valley team to beat Wichita State in the past two seasons
