IOWA CITY, Iowa – Friday on the Todd Brommelkamp Show with Alex Kuhn on KGYM, we handed out our Big Ten postseason awards. They included player of the year, coach of the year, all-conference teams and more.

I decided to update my picks with the regular season wrapping up Sunday with Iowa’s 78-76 loss to Illinois in Champaign. I only changed one player on my all-league teams, moving Ayo Donsunmu to my first unit and dropping Maryland’s Jalen Smith down to second team.

Here’s what I have:


First Team

Luka Garza, Iowa

Cassius Winston, Michigan St.

Daniel Oturu, Minnesota

Anthony Cowan, Maryland

Ayo Dosunmu, Illinois

Second Team
