Big 12 POY Marcus Smart - Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports
Marcus Smart was named Big 12 player of the year joining Tony Allen and Big Games James Anderson as the only Cowboys to ever win the award.
The fabulous freshman was awarded Big 12 player of the year, first team all Big 12 and Freshman of the year. Markel Brown and Le'Bryan Nash were also named to the second and third team respectively.
Here's the full first team:
Marcus Smart - Oklahoma State
Ben McLemore - Kansas
Jeff Withey - Kansas
Romero Osby - Oklahoma
McGyver McGruder - Kansas State
Where's Pierre Jackson? I suppose you can only have 5 but the kid led the Big 12 in points and assists. S/O to Big Cobbins for being named to the Big 12 all defensive team. *Finger Shake*

It's truly been a special year for Smart and the good news is that it's not over. I've given Travis Ford a lot of hell but kudos to him and his staff for getting this kid to Stillwater. Keep em coming...
