Iowa star Luka Garza is the Big 10 Player of the Year.

The conference announced the legendary Iowa forward as the conference’s PoY Monday afternoon, and it’s the second year in the row he’s won the award. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Even though I hate Iowa and find their fanbase to be laughable, Garza is the correct choice for PoY in the B1G.

That dude is a freak all over the court. He’s a monster near the rim and he has a silky smooth shot from the perimeter.

As a Wisconsin fan, I watched him eat us up twice this season. There’s literally no answer for him at all.

All you can hope to do is shut everyone else down and contain Garza. If you can do that, then you can beat Iowa. If you let Garza and a couple of his teammates cook, then you’re done.

Now, I hope we see Garza this Friday and send him home to watch the weekend B1G tournament games from his couch. If you want to be the best, then you have to play the best.

Right now, that’s Luka Garza.
