After being named the Wooden Award winner Friday morning, Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky completed a clean sweep of all five major player of the year honors.

Jahlil Okafor of Duke was second in the voting, while Kentucky‘s Willie Cauley-Stein was third.

Kaminsky had a stellar senior season, averaging 18.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game, while boosting those numbers to 22 points and 9.3 rebounds during the NCAA tournament.

He led his team to a Big Ten regular-season title, a Big Ten Tournament title and a second consecutive trip to the Final Four. His Badgers also handed Kentucky their only loss of the 2014-15 season, before falling short to Duke in the National Championship.

The 7-footer is projected to be a lottery pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. DraftExpress.com has Kaminsky going 10th overall, while NBADraft.net has him as a mid first-round selection.
