INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Luka Garza of Iowa is The Associated Press men’s college basketball player of the year. The 6-foot-11, 265-pound senior received 50 of 63 votes from a national media panel. Ayo Dosunmu of Illinois was second with six votes. Garza was the runner-up for last year's award behind Dayton's Obi Toppin. He ranked second nationally as a senior by averaging 24.1 points while also improving his shooting percentages. He finished his career as Iowa's all-time leading scorer. Garza credits much of his success to meditation. He says it helped him handle the pressure that came with high expectations this season.
