IRVING, Texas (AP) — Baylor senior guard Odyssey Sims, the nation's leading scorer at 29.6 points per game, has been picked as the Big 12 Player of the Year by the league's coaches.
Sims was also named Thursday as the Big 12's top defensive player.
The No. 9 Lady Bears, who won the Big 12 title outright the past three years, shared the regular-season crown this season with No. 7 West Virginia, whose 10-game winning streak includes a win last weekend in Waco. Mike Carey got his first Big 12 Coach of the Year award in the Mountaineers' second season in the league.
Baylor forward Nina Davis, the league leader with 9.0 rebounds per game and a .596 field goal percentage, is the Big 12's top freshman. Sims won that award in 2011.
