Turner wins Wooden Award over John Wall

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ohio State's Evan Turner has won the John R.
Wooden Award, claiming yet another trophy as the nation's top
basketball player.
Turner was chosen Friday night over Kentucky freshman John Wall,
Syracuse's Wesley Johnson, West Virginia forward Da'Sean Butler and
Kansas guard Sherron Collins for the 34th Wooden Award at the Los
Angeles Athletic Club.
Turner already won The Associated Press player of the year award
and the Naismith Award. The Big Ten's player of the year averaged
20.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists while making more than 52
percent of his shots.
The 6-foot-7 ball-handling swingman announced Tuesday he's
skipping his senior season to enter the NBA draft.
