COLUMBUS, Ohio — University of Iowa junior Tyler Cook was named Thursday to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 7 Second Team.
Cook, who was also tabbed to the USBWA All-District Team and a second-team all-conference by the Big Ten media honoree earlier this month, ranks third in the league in free throws attempted per game (6.16), sixth in rebounding (7.9), 11th in field goal percentage (.528), and 12th in scoring (14.9). Cook (6-foot-9, 250 pounds) is one of only nine players in program history to total more than 1,200 points and 600 rebounds. The native of St. Louis, Missouri, has posted a team-best six double-doubles this season and is one of 15 players in Iowa history to record at least 15 career double-doubles. He recorded at least 15 points and five rebounds over a 10-game span from Nov. 30 to Jan. 12, becoming the first Hawkeye to accomplish the feat since James Winters 25 years ago (1993-94). The junior forward was named to the 2K Empire Classic All-Tournament Team, averaging 17.5 points and nine rebounds in wins over Oregon and Connecticut at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Joining Cook on the second team were Zavier Simpson (Michigan); Anthony Cowan (Maryland); Ignas Brazdeikis (Michigan); and Lamar Stevens (Penn State). First team honorees included Cassius Winston (Michigan State); Carsen Edwards (Purdue); Ethan Happ (Wisconsin); Bruno Fernando (Maryland); and Jordan Murphy (Minnesota).
Iowa (22-11) will open play in the NCAA Tournament on Friday against No. 22/24 Cincinnati (28-6). Game time is set for 11:15 a.m. (CT) at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
