Hawkeyes big man Luka Garza became Iowa’s first winner of the John R. Wooden Player of the Year Award on Tuesday after his dominant 2020-21 season. 

“Winning the Wooden Award means so much to myself and my family,” Garza said. ” John Wooden was someone my grandfather was friends with, and someone who I was taught a lot about growing up. I studied the pyramid, and many of his books to try and become the teammate and player that could win a championship.”

Garza completed the sweep of winning every major postseason award such as the Naismith Trophy, Associated Press College Basketball Player of the Year, Oscar Robertson Trophy, NABC Division I Player of the Year, Lute Olsen National Player of the Year and Sporting News National Player of the Year.
