An excerpt about Wall:

BUZZ: Wall received the Adolph Rupp Trophy, given annually to the nation's top player, though he lost out to Ohio State's Evan Turner for the other major player-of-the-year honors. He led the SEC in assists (6.5), ranked fifth in the league in scoring (16.6) and finished third in steals (1.8) while leading Kentucky to a 35-3 record and the East Regional final.
