Earning a share of the Big 12 regular-season championship bodes well for the conference's award season. 

Sophomore forward Jarrett Culver was named the Big 12's player of the year on Sunday after averaging 18.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists during the regular season. He is the first Red Raider to earn the honor.

Head coach Chris Beard was named the conference's coach of the year for the second straight season after leading the Red Raiders to their first share of a Big 12 regular-season championship with a 14-4 conference record.
