INDIANAPOLIS – University of Iowa senior Luka Garza was one five student-athletes voted to the Big Ten Men’s Basketball All-Tournament Team. The announcement was made Sunday evening by the Bg Ten Conference following the tournament championship game.

Garza joined Ayo Dosunmu and Kofi Cockburn of Illinois, and Ohio State’s Duane Washington Jr. and E.J. Liddell on the all-tournament team.

Garza averaged 22.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 2.5 assists, and two steals in two games. The native of Washington, D.C., posted game bests in scoring (24), rebounds (9), and blocks (4) in Iowa’s quarterfinals victory over Wisconsin on Friday. He grabbed a game-best 12 rebounds and a team-best 21 points and three steals in the loss to third-ranked Illinois in the semifinals on Saturday.

No. 2 seed Iowa (21-8) will face 15th-seed Grand Canyon (17-6) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Indianapolis on Saturday (time and television TBD).
