Make room for more: Tucker nets another honor

first_imgThe hardware just keeps on coming for Wisconsin’s Alando Tucker. His trophy case is becoming so big, his Mom is running out of room for all of the awards.”I hope she’s not tossing them in the basement,” Tucker said. “She’s a big collector of all my [awards].”That collection just got a little bigger, as the latest honor to be bestowed upon the UW senior forward came Wednesday afternoon, when he was named a first-team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.The award comes just one day after Tucker received news that he was the Big Ten’s Player of the Year.In 31 games this season, Tucker has averaged 20.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, making 48 percent of his field goals, and finishing runner-up to Iowa’s Adam Haluska in the Big Ten’s scoring race. “That’s exciting to me to hear from all my teammates the congratulations. Any time you can bring home an award like that it’s good for the program,” Tucker said after being named conference Player of the Year.Joining Tucker on the team was Acie Law IV of Texas A&M, Aaron Afflalo of UCLA, Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina and the freshman phenom considered to be Tucker’s main competition for National Player of the Year, Texas’ Kevin Durant.Tucker is the first Wisconsin player to be named a first-team All-American since Don Rehfeldt in 1950. Similarly, Tucker — who is now just 22 points shy of Michael Finley’s career scoring record — is now being discussed as being possibly the greatest player ever to don the cardinal and white.”I always expected myself to do great things,” Tucker said. “To actually accomplish so many things though, it feels good, and it feels good to hear other people say that.”last_img read more
