LUTE OLSON AWARD "PLAYER OF THE WEEK" HONORS
[return to collegeinsider.com]


Nov.  17, 2014


BOSTON (MA) -- Iowa State's Georges Niang earns Lute Olson award national player of the week honors.

The 6-foot-8 junior opened the season with a career-high 30 points to go along with 9 rebounds and 5 assists in the Cyclones win over Oakland. Niang was 9-for-17 from the field, including 2-of-3 from 3-point range.

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.
