OSU’S Cunningham wins Big 12 Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year

STILLWATER, Okla. — OSU freshman guard Cade Cunningham is the Big 12 Conference’s Player of the Year.

The Big 12 live-tweeted its men’s basketball awards Monday afternoon.

Cunningham, who led the conference with 19.7 points per game, was also named Freshman of the Year.

The consensus NBA Draft lottery pick rolled his left ankle in a recent game against Baylor. The Pokes hope to have him back as they tip-off Thursday at 10:30 a.m. against West Virginia in the Big 12 tournament.
