One day after the IU men’s basketball team locked up the regular Big Ten championship, the league’s coaches named junior guard Victor Oladipo the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.
Junior forward Will Sheehey was named the Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year. Sophomore center Cody Zeller joined Oladipo as First Team All-Big Ten honorees. Oladipo was also named to the Big Ten’s All-Defensive Team.
Oladipo leads the Big Ten in steals and is shooting a Big Ten best 61.4 percent from the field. Zeller is shooting 57 percent from the field, ranking second in the league.
The Hoosiers are the top seed in the Big Ten Tournament. They play the winner of the Illinois / Minnesota game Friday at Noon in Chicago.
