Turner Named Player of the Year by USBWA
ST. LOUIS (USBWA) – The U.S. Basketball Writers Association has selected Ohio State guard/forward Evan Turner as the winner of the 2009-10 Oscar Robertson Trophy, annually presented to the National Player of the Year. The 6-7, 210-pound junior from Chicago, was the consensus choice by voters in all nine geographical districts of the USBWA. Turner becomes the first national player of the year from Ohio State since Jerry Lucas won his second straight USBWA Player of the Year award in 1962. Turner is also the first Big Ten player to win the honor since Purdue’s Glenn Robinson in 1994. – MORE –
