Wilson’s 92 Academic All-Big Ten award winners sets a program record. IU had 24 honorees in 2011, 22 in 2012 and a school-record 26 in 2013. During that time, Wilson has coached two of IU’s nine Academic All-Americans in Adam Replogle (2012) and most recently Mark Murphy, who earned the honor in 2013 and 2014.
