During halftime of the Michigan State/Purdue game here at the Big Ten Tournament, two conference student-athletes -- Minnesota cross country and track runner Mike Torchia and Purdue swimmer Allie Smith -- were honored as this year's recipients of the Wayne Duke Postgraduate Award presented by the Indianapolis Big Ten Community Partnership.

Each Big Ten institution was asked to nominate one male and one female student-athlete for 2011, with a $5,000 scholarship awarded to each winner.
