LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The awards have started to arrive for the Indiana University basketball team.

The latest honors arrived Tuesday when members of the U.S. Basketball Writers Association named IU coach Tom Crean the Coach of the Year in District V, which includes Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

That honor came one day after Crean was named the top coach in the Big Ten by the media and the coaches.

Ferrell was named one of the top 10 players in District V. The writers and coaches also selected him to the first team in the Big Ten. He was also named second team all-American by USA Today.

Indiana begins play in the Big Ten Tournament Friday at noon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The Hoosiers will play the winner of Thursday’s Northwestern-Michigan game. IU beat the Wolverines, 80-67, on Feb. 2 in Ann Arbor. The Hoosiers also defeated Northwestern, 89-57, on Jan. 23 in Bloomington.
