JIM PHELAN AWARD MID-SEASON HONORS:  JOHN BEILEIN, MICHIGAN

BOSTON, MA -- After leading Michigan to the second best start in school history, John Beilein is the recipient of the Jim Phelan Award mid-season coaching honors.

"Any conversation about the best coaches in college basketball should include the name "John Beilein," says CollegeInsider.com co-founder Angela Lento. "He did an outstanding job at Canisius and Richmond and had West Virginia within a possession of going to the Final Four. Now he has Michigan team capable of going deep into March."

Currently ranked No. 2 in both the Associated Press and the USA Today Coaches polls, the unbeaten Wolverines have wins over Pittsburgh, Kansas State and NC State.

BOSTON, MA -- After leading his team to a 12-1 start, Creighton's Doug McDermott is the recipient of the Lute Olson Award mid-season honors.

"Doug isn't a great scorer, he's a great basketball player," says CollegeInsider.com co-founder Angela Lento. "There are nights when he doesn't score a lot of points but is still a difference maker on the floor. He's a winner."

BOSTON, MA -- After leading Bryant to its best non-conference record in the Division I era, Tim O'Shea is the recipient of the Hugh Durham Award mid-season coaching honors.

"Tim has done a terrific job," says CollegeInsider.com co-founder Angela Lento. "Bryant already has more than three times as many wins as they did all of last season. They look like a postseason team."

Following an 0-2 start, O'Shea's team won 7-of-9 including road wins at Boston College and Lehigh, which was then-ranked No. 4 in the Mid-Major Top 25. The win propelled Bryant into the Mid-Major rankings for the first time in school history.

LOU HENSON AWARD MID-SEASON HONORS:  RYAN BROEKHOFF, VALPARAISO

BOSTON, MA -- After helping Valparaiso to a 10-4 start, Valparaiso's Ryan Broekhoff is the recipient of the Lou Henson Award mid-season honors.

"Ryan should have been named to the Lou Henson preseason All-America team," says CollegeInsider.com co-founder Angela Lento. "He's a terrific talent who can shoot it and score near the basket. And he has a knack for playing big in big games."

The 6-foot-7 senior has helped Valparaiso to a No. 12 ranking in the latest Mid-Major Top 25. He scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Crusaders overcame a 15-point defecit to beat then No. 5 ranked Murray State.
