Steve Logan has won another national player of the year award. The Cincinnati senior guard has been named the Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award winner, honoring the nation's outstanding senior male collegian 6 feet or under.
The award, named in honor of Dr. James Naismith's daughter-in-law, was selected by a panel of representatives from the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The recipient must demonstrate leadership, character, loyalty and all-around basketball ability.
