CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The Missouri Valley Conference tabbed UNI freshman Tywhon Pickford and senior Bennett Koch in their postseason awards announced on Tuesday.

Pickford was named to both the All-Freshman and All-Newcomer teams following a season that saw him produce as one of the top rebounders in the conference. Pickford ranks second in the Valley with 8 rebounds per game. He recorded 11 double-digit rebounding games this season.

The conference named Koch to the All-Missouri Valley Conference third team. He currently leads UNI in scoring and blocked shots this season. Earlier this year Koch became the 42nd player in Panther history to top 1,000 career points.

9th seeded UNI opens up the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament on Thursday against 8th seeded Evansville.
