McDermott has been named the John R. Wooden award winner as the best men's basketball player in the country for the 2013-2014 season, ESPN.com reports.
McDermott has long been considered the favorite to win the award, so his victory comes as no surprise. He averaged 26.7 points per game, the top mark in the nation. He finished as the sport's fifth leading all-time scorer, topping players such as Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson. As a graduating senior, McDermott figures to enter the NBA draft this season, where he is currently projected to be a late lottery pick
