IOWA CITY, Iowa (Associated Press) - Iowa forward Luka Garza could have heard his name called in Wednesday night’s NBA draft.

Instead, he opted for the uncertainty of playing a final college basketball season amid a pandemic.

Garza heads the list of notable seniors gearing up for the 2020-21 campaign. He was the Big Ten player of the year last season and finished runner-up to Dayton’s Obi Toppin in Associated Press player of the year voting.

The 6-foot-11 forward averaged 23.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.
