Ohio State's Evan Turner continued his sweep of national player of the year awards by taking home the Wooden Award on Friday night in Los Angeles.

Turner spent the previous evening hanging out with Jimmy Kimmel, and on the nationally televised show, Kimmel managed to flash some knowledge by calling the Buckeyes star as Evan "The Villain" Turner.

That's the nickname that walk-on teammate and blogger Mark Titus famously bestowed upon Turner, who broke into a huge smile while sitting in the audience alongside Wooden Award finalist Wes Johnson of Syracuse.

"I'm going to say a prayer for you guys that neither of you winds up on the Clippers," Kimmel joked.

Both players laughed at that one, but Johnson, who hasn't yet announced his intentions, actually might be headed to the Clippers according to at least one mock draft.
