Bruce Weber thinks Trae Young isn’t the Big 12 Player of the Year

When asked if Trae Young is the Big 12 Player of the Year, Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber didn’t exactly answer in the affirmative.

According to Cody Stavenhagen of the Tulsa World, Weber thinks that the player of the year award should go to the conference’s champion.

The Sooners completed an 86-77 victory over Weber’s Wildcats. Young scored 27 points during the game, and is scoring a nation-leading 28.3 points per game. He also leads the nation in assists per game with 9.2. Of all the players in college basketball, no one contributes more to their team’s offense than Young.
