Adam Haluska has been named a first team senior all-American by the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award.
Haluska, a senior from Carroll, IA, was one of 10 finalists for the Lowe’s Senior Class Award. That award was presented Saturday to Wisconsin’s Alando Tucker. Haluska and Tucker were joined on the senior all-America first team by Acie Law of Texas A&M, Nick Fazekas of Nevada and Curtis Sumpter of Villanova.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award was launched during the 2001-02 season to honor the attributes of college basketball seniors who remain committed to their university and pursue the many rewards that a senior season can bring. The award was conceived by sportscaster Dick Enberg, who continues to serve as Honorary Chairman.
Haluska led the Big Ten Conference in scoring while earning first team all-Big Ten honors in his final season. He was named honorable mention all-American by the Associated Press and was also the Division I men’s basketball Academic all-American of the Year. He earned academic all-Big Ten recognition in each of his three seasons at Iowa.
Haluska will continue his post-season travels next week when he takes part in the Portsmouth Invitational in Portsmouth, VA.
