OSU's Turner Wins Wooden Award
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 Thursday 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.
