Just announced by the Big Ten, Max Bielfeldt has won the conference's sixth man of the year award, per the coaches and media.

Bielfeldt's impact has been massive in his only season in Bloomington, averaging 8 points and 4.5 rebounds as the first guy off the bench for the Hoosiers. All are career highs for Bielfeldt, who's the first ever player in Big Ten history to win basketball championships as a player at multiple schools.
