2012-13 Lute Olson Award

Miami's Shane Larkin is the recipient of the 2013 Lute Olson Award, presented to the top division I player.

APRIL 5, 2013
ATLANTA, GA -- Miami's Shane Larkin is the recipient of the 2013 Lute Olson National Player of the Year award.  
"Shane helped Miami to its first-ever ACC regular season and postseason tournament championships," said CollegeInsider.com co-founder Angela Lento. "No point guard meant more to his team than Shane Larkin."
The Lute Olson Award is presented annually to the nation's top Division I player who has played at least two seasons with his respective team. Freshmen and first-year transfers can be named to the All-America team, but are not eligible to receive the Player of the Year honors.
The award is named in honor of coaching great Lute Olson, who won 780 games in 34 seasons, 24 of which were spent at the University of Arizona. During that stretch he led the Wildcats to 11 Pac-10 Conference titles, 23 consecutive NCAA Tournaments, four Final Four appearances and a National Championship in 1997.
