IU-Rutgers 1

Indiana guard Romeo Langford drives around Rutger's Peter Kiss during the Hoosiers' 89-73 victory over Rutgers at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall on Sunday. 

Indiana freshman Romeo Langford completed his first — and possibly only — regular season Sunday. 

On Monday, the honors started coming in for the 2018 New Albany graduate and Indiana Mr. Basketball. The 6-foot-6 guard was named second-team All-Big Ten by the league coaches and third-team by the media. He was also chosen to the conference’s All-Freshman team by the league coaches. Langford, however, lost out on Freshman of the Year honors to Michigan’s Ignas “Iggy” Brazdeikis. 

Langford is averaging 16.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for the Hoosiers (17-14, 8-12), who finished their regular season with an 89-73 win over Rutgers on Sunday at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. 

Ninth-seeded Indiana will face eighth-seeded Ohio State (18-13, 8-12) at 12:30 p.m. Thursday in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament at the United Center in Chicago. The Buckeyes beat the Hoosiers 55-52 Feb. 10 at Assembly Hall. IU, which has won four straight games, likely needs a victory in that game to have a chance to make the NCAA Tournament. 

Langford is a projected lottery pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
