When is MOP named after Final Four ends?

For example, if the tournament ends on a Monday, when would the AP name the Most Outstanding Player? By the end of the week.

I’m writing a story set in 1978, so if there was a difference then, please let me know.

Thanks, Dopers, for your continued research assistance!

In 1978, Jack Givens was named MOP on the night of the game, according to a story in the NY Times the next day. He got 161 of 163 votes.
