BOSTON (MA) -- Army's Kyle Wilson earns the Lou Henson award
national player of the week honors.
The 6-foot-4 junior guard helped the Cadets capture the
All-Military Classic over the weekend. Wilson opened with 25
points in Friday's win over Air Force and followed with 19 in
Saturday's win over VMI. Wilson was named Tournament MVP.
The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the top Mid-Major
player in Division I college basketball.
The award is named in honor of Lou Henson who retired after a
spectacular coaching career that lasted 41 years. When he left
the game in 2005 he was sixth all-time in career Division I wins
with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New
Mexico State. He is one of only 12 coaches in the history of the
game to take two schools to the Final Four.
