Machado a finalist for Wooden Award
By Kieran Darcy
Iona senior point guard Scott Machado, who led the nation in assists per game this season, is one of 16 finalists for the John R. Wooden Award -- a great achievement, particularly for a player at a mid-major school.
(Although I'm sure he would trade it for an NCAA tournament bid for his Gaels, who were upset in the MAAC semifinals two days ago, and are probably headed to the NIT.)
