Northern Iowa’s A.J. Green has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Year. The Cedar Falls native averaged more than 15 points for the Panthers as they finished conference play with a 9-9 record.

 

Green says he learned a lot during his freshman season.

 

Drake’s Nick McGlynn has been named the Defensive Player of the Year. The senior helped lead the Bulldogs to a share of the Valley regular season title.

 

Iowa State looks to get things turned around as the Cyclones open the final week of the regular season tomorrow night at West Virginia. ISU has dropped three of their last four games.

 

That’s sophomore guard Lindell Wigginton who says the Cyclones would like to build momentum.

 

Senior guard Marial Shayok says with the post season ahead there is a sense of urgency.
