Adam Koch 3rd in MVC Player of the Year vote

Posted:

ST. LOUIS-  Maybe spreading the ball around does have its downside, UNI junior forward Adam Koch ended up 3rd in the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year voting.  Booker Woodfox of co-champion Creighton was crowned the Larry Bird Player of the Year after averaging 15.9 points per game and shooting over 50% from 3-point range. 

Koch received 4 first place votes and landed on the 1st team all-conference.  Teammate Jordan Egelseder received one 1st place vote. 

Sophomore guard Kwadzo Ahelegbe received one 3rd place vote and made 2nd team all-conference.  Ahelegbe is also on the all-defensive team.

Sophomore Lucas O'Rear is the league's 6th Man of the Year, the first UNI Panther to earn that distinction. 

Kirkwood transer Ali Farokhmanesh made the all-newcomer list and Johnny Moran earned all-freshman team honors.
